A unique approach to exploring one’s heritage. A key to discovering the food and history of this region, formerly known as Lucania, it focuses on the ancient and modern cuisine of the area, dating back to the Middle Ages; with discussions of some towns and locations, including photographs and fascinating vignettes of life in Basilicata. Much more than a cook book, “Discovering Basilicata” is a heartfelt, passionate tribute to the author’s Italian heritage and his Italian immigrant grandmother. Basilicata, today, still preserves the essence of old Italy.
Presented in both Italian and English to add to its authentic nature.
