A Blissful Feast: Culinary Adventures in Italy's Piedmont, Maremma, and Le Marche, Theresa Lust
A delicious journey through Italy and a celebration of the relationship between family and food.

Moving from the Italian Piemonte to the Tuscan Maremma and on to Marche, chef Teresa Lust interweaves portraits of her culinary mentors with cultural and natural history in this charming exploration of authentic Italian cuisine.

We learn how to prepare bagna cauda—a robust dipping sauce of anchovies, garlic, and olive oil—with Lust’s relatives outside Torino. We learn about making hand-stretched grissini, Italy’s iconic breadstick, the secrets of whipping up zabaione, a classic dessert of ethereal foam made with egg yolks, sugar, and marsala. Then there is acquacotta, a rustic soup that nourished generations of the area’s shepherds. In the town of Camerano near Ancona, an eighty-year-old woman reveals the art of hand-rolling pasta with a three-foot rolling pin.

Lust’s stories are punctuated with recipes. Our favorites include:

Renaissance Tuskey with Prosecco, White Raisins, and Bay Leaves

Piemonte Hot Spiced Wine

Scrambled Eggs with Asparagus

Fresh Egg Tagliatelle
