The sunbaked south of Italy, comprising Sicily, Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia, is a land of ancient and varied history, fascinating extremes of landscape and climate, and a people for whom food is a passion. This book opens with an evocative introduction to the history, geography and traditions that have shaped the culinary culture of these regions, as well as an intriguing commentary on the local festivals and their accompanying foods. This is followed by an essential guide to the classic ingredients, including cured meats, fresh fish and shellfish, piquant ewe's milk cheeses, the finest olive oils, spicy chilli peppers, spicy peperonicino, top-quality durum wheat and sweet Marsala wine. There follows a collection of 65 regional recipes, with chapters covering all the traditional courses. Authentic dishes are included from each region, such as Sicilian Rice Fritters, Pasta with Potenza Ragu, Trapani Fish Couscous, Lucanian Chicken Pie, Pugliese Beef Rolls, Calabrian Sweetmeats and Sicilian Cassata.
