Acquacotta: Recipes/ Stories from Tuscany's Silver Coast

By Book

Discover the cuisine of a secret part of southernmost Tuscany, known as La Costa D’Argento – the silver coast. This cookbook is a celebration of the region’s local ingredients, as well as a history of rustic, storied dishes including scampi and potato soup, hand-rolled strozzapreti noodles, spinach and ricotta tortelli, chestnut gnocchi and the classic fig and chocolate bread, pagnotella. Plus, of course, the book’s namesake acquacotta, a quintessential Maremman peasant dish that captures the spirit of this special place.
