Piemonte - literally the "foot of the mountains" is in the far north-west of Italy. To the west is France, to the north Switzerland and to the east the plains of Lombardy and the city of Milano. Some of the richest agricultural land in Italy is found here, where the Po Valley spreads out below the mountain ranges, and the result is some of the best produce on offer. 'Autumn in Piemonte' is a story of friends and family, of people and places, and of course of food & drink. Manuela Darling-Gansser, along with photographer Simon Griffiths, captures the heart and soul of this naturally beautiful and culturally fascinating part of the world. Their journey includes the hills, valleys and plains of Piemonte, as well as visiting the elegant and stylish capital of Torino (Turin), the Royal city. From Crissini con le Noci to Fritatta Gialla e Verde, and from tiny countryside trattorias to opulent Torino cafes, 'Autumn in Piemonte' is also a culinary delight. Manuela Darling-Gansser has cooking in her blood, her greatgrandfather founded a restaurant in Lugano 120 years ago and his son, her grandfather, made it famous.
She is your perfect guide host, intimately translating the food and flavours of her heritage. 'Autumn in Piemonte', from the author of the bestselling 'Under the Olive Tree', is a visually stunning feast of Italian culture and lifestyle.
