Rossetto Kasper, author of The
Splendid Table and host
of PRI’s award winning radio program of the same name, is a master at
transporting her readers and listeners into the fascinating world of the
Italian countryside. In Stories
from The Italian Country Table, Lynne brings to life her adventures
in rural Italy.
Stories from The Italian Country Table illustrates how, in Italy, eating well
and coming together around the table are inseparable from the folklore,
history, handmade foods, and storytelling so dear to the hearts of country
people. You’ll enjoy polenta with new zest after hearing “Cheater’s Gold” and
“Honeymooners and Corn Husk Mattresses.” Step into a Sicilian shepherd’s hut
and practically taste the fresh-made sweet ricotta. Hear “How a Capon Became a
Father,” celebrate gathering “The Dew of Midsummer’s Eve,” and learn the art of
complaining Italian-style with “Eating White.”
To make your
Italian experience complete, Stories from The Italian Country Table comes with the first 30-minute Italian
lesson in the Pimsleur Language Program—the revolutionary audio-only language
learning system—as an added bonus.
A perfect audio
companion to the recipes featured in Kasper’s book, The Italian Country Table,
