Frances Mayes - Cooks with Books Event: The Tuscan Sun Cookbook: Recipes from Our Italian Kitchen

Sunday, April 1, 2012 - 6:30pm

Admission $110 per person/ $185 per couple 


In all of Frances Mayes’s bestselling memoirs about Tuscany, food plays a starring role. This cuisine transports, comforts, entices, and speaks to the friendly, genuine, and improvisational spirit of Tuscan life. Both cooking and eating in Tuscany are natural pleasures. In her first-ever cookbook, The Tuscan Sun Cookbook: Recipes from Our Italian Kitchen, Frances and her husband, Ed, share recipes that they have enjoyed over the years as honorary Tuscans: dishes prepared in a simple, traditional kitchen using robust, honest ingredients.
A toast to the experiences they’ve had over two decades at Bramasole, their home in Cortona, Italy, this cookbook evokes days spent roaming the countryside for chestnuts, green almonds, blackberries, and porcini; dinner parties stretching into the wee hours,  and garden baskets tumbling over with bright red tomatoes.
Lose yourself in the delectable food, the people, and the place, as Frances’ lyrical introductions and headnotes put you by her side in her Tuscan kitchen. Join us for dinner with Frances as we raise a glass at the table in celebration of the flavors of Tuscany!
The price includes the meal, wine, coffee, tax, tip & a signed copy of the author’s book.
