Description

MEET PAOLA BACCHIA

Adriatico: recipes & stories from Italy's Adriatic coast is local author Paola Bacchia's new cookbook that was released in September.

Following the success of her first cookbook, Italian Street Food, Adriatico explores stories and food traditions of the less-well known Adriatic coast of Italy; a 1200km expanse from Puglia, the heel of the boot-shaped peninsula through the Gulf of Trieste.

The 1200km coastline is peppered with spindly wooden fishing piers, white washed walls, colourful villages and sea-facing piazzas, and has a rich history touched by Etruscan, Greek, Roman, Venetian and Austrian peoples.

Containing 84 recipes and beautiful photographs of the towns and coastlines, Adriatico is a beguiling photographic and travel journal as well as a recipe book.

Paola Bacchia was born to Italian migrant parents and into their food culture. Her award-winning blog, Italy On My Mind, explores the connection between family memories and food through stories, photos and recipes. She returns to Italy every year to expand her knowledge of Italian food and traditions. Paola also runs cooking classes and food tours to Italy

Here is just a little taste from her blog about a week in Puglia to whet your appetite for what will be a wonderful book launch...


Please join us for an intimate chat with Paola Bacchia as we explore Adriatico and sample some of the dishes included in her cookbook.
