Tortellini at Midnight: and other heirloom family recipes from Taranto to Turin to Tuscany [9781743794531]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Don't eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn't recognise as food. - Michael Pollan

Sometime in the 1950s, Emiko Davies' nonno-in-law began the tradition of ringing in the new year with tortellini al sugo. He served it along with spumante and a round of tombola, and sparked a trend; for over 20 years, you could find tortellini at midnight on New Year's Eve in the bars around Fucecchio.

This is just one of the heirloom dishes in this collection, for which Emiko Davies has gathered some of her favorite family recipes. They trace generations that span the length of Italy, from the Mediterranean port city of Taranto in the southern heel of Puglia to elegant Turin, the city of aperitif and Italian cafe culture in the far north and, finally, back to Tuscany, which Emiko calls home.

Tortellini at Midnight is a book rich with nostalgia, with fresh, comforting food and stunning photography. It is a book that is good for the soul.

AUTHOR: Emiko Davies is an Australian-Japanese food writer and Food52 and Cucina Corriere columnist living in Tuscany. She arrived in Florence with nothing but some broken Italian. The city soon stole her heart and inspired her to begin her blog, www.emikodavies.com, about Tuscan food, its history, and its almost strict adherence to traditions. Wherever she is, the kitchen is the life and heart of her home. Emiko says she gathers there and cooks with her family every day.

Emiko is the author of Acquacotta and Florentine.
