Author and series host David Rocco takes readers on a fun-filled journey through Italy’s most fascinating food centers and reveals the secrets behind the most popular Italian dishes. Seafood bought fresh from La Spezia fishermen becomes a mariner’s dinner of Antipasto di Mare. Truffles picked in the forests of Umbria are turned into the sumptuous Frittata al Tartufo. And a tour of the baroque city of Arona on the alpine Lago Maggiore is topped off with a dessert once created for the queen of Italy. In its mix of culture and cuisine, Avventura is perfect for armchair travelers and hands-on adventurers alike.
