Description
(A New York Times Notable Book of 1997) Doing for Tuscany what Peter Mayle did for Provence, Frances Mayes here discovers the tastes and pleasures of a foreign country, and describes them here with gusto and passion—and recipes. Restoring an abandoned villa in the spectacular Tuscan countryside, she finds unexpected treasures at every turn: faded frescoes beneath the whitewash in her dining room, a vineyard under wildly overgrown brambles in the garden, and, in the nearby hill towns, vibrant markets and delightful people.

"An intense celebration of what [Mayes] calls 'the voluptuousness of Italian life' ... the kind of [book] you'd tuck into a picnic basket on an August day ... or better yet, keep handy on the bedside table in the depths of January."—NYTBR

"Mayes [has] perfect vision.... I do not doubt that centuries from now, whoever lives in Bramasole will one day uncover bits of pottery used at Mayes' table. She has, by the sweat of her brow and the strength of her vision, become a layer in the history of this place."—LATimes
