Renowned food scholar Carole M. Counihan serves up a delicious narrative about family and food in twentieth-century Florence. By looking at how family, and especially gender relations, have changed in Florence since the end of World War II and continuing on to an examination of current food practices, Around the Tuscan Table offers a portrait of the changing nature of modern life as exemplified through food. How food is produced, distributed, and consumed speaks volumes about a culture, and this compelling and artfully narrated book aims to preserve, propagate, and interpret Florentines' world-renowned cuisine and culture. Based on interviews with Italians and spiced with age-old family recipes, this book is a treat for the senses and the intellect.
