Bella Figura: How to Live, Love and Eat the Italian Way [9781408856208]

(1 review) Write a Review
In 2008, Kamin Mohammadi found herself worn down - by the increasingly unrealistic expectations of her high-flying job in the magazine industry, by her fluctuating weight and health issues, and by her non-existent love life. Made redundant from her job, she fled the bleak streets of London for a friend's sun-dappled apartment in Florence. There, among the cobbled streets, the bustling, vibrant markets and the majestic palazzos, Kamin found a new lease of life. Leaving behind her ascetic diets and compulsive exercising, she began to imitate the ways of the carefree Italian women she saw around her - the morning cafe rituals, the long lunches - taking pleasure in the finer things. Within weeks she had regained her health, her natural figure and her zest for life - and even a lover or two. At once lyrical and practical, Bella Figura shows us how to make every aspect of life as beautiful as it can be. From how to choose the perfectly ripe tomato to how to walk down the street in style, Kamin Mohammadi explores the intricate nuances of Italian culture, and sets down a simple guide to a better, more elegant - and ultimately more satisfying - life.
AUTHOR: Kamin Mohammadi was born in Iran in 1969 and exiled to the UK in 1979.
