Description - The Land Where Lemons Grow by Helena Attlee
This is a portrait of Italy unlike any other, a heady blend of travel, history, art and food that takes us from Lake Garda's lemon houses through the gardens of Tuscan villas to Calabria's scented bergamot groves and a Sicilian marmalade kitchen, from top to bottom of the land where lemons grow. 'Unmissable, essential for all lovers of Italy . . . she has transformed my view of the country.' Robin Lane Fox, Financial Times? 'I was there with her.' Anna del Conte, Sunday Telegraph? 'What a joy . . . A paradise of citrus is how I always think of Italy too- a place where ice-cold limoncello is sipped from tiny glasses on piazzas, and everything from ricotta cake to ossobuco is enlivened with zest.' Bee Wilson, Daily Telegraph? 'Helena Attlee is the best of companions as she leads us through sundrenched citrus groves and in and out of history.' Deborah Moggach
