Book Title and Author Byline

Pasta, Pane, Vino

Deep Travels Through Italy’s Food Culture

Product Description and Author Information

About the Book

Three brothers who became the burrata kings of Puglia. The pizza police of Naples and the innovative pies that stay one step ahead of the rules. The Barolo Boys who turned the hilly Piedmont into one of the world’s great wine regions. These are just some of the fascinating people and their stories that Matt Goulding brings to life on the page—town by town, bite by bite—in this intimate portrait of Italy and its food culture.

This is not a cookbook. This is something more: a travelogue, a patient investigation of Italy’s cuisine, a loving profile of the everyday heroes who bring Italy to the table. Pasta, Pane, Vino is the latest offering of the genre-bending Roads & Kingdoms editions pioneered with Anthony Bourdain in Rice, Noodle, Fish (Japan) and Grape, Olive Pig (Spain).

A James Beard Award–winning writer, Matt Goulding has never been better, writing in complete harmony with the book’s innovative design and the more than 200 lush color photographs that introduce the chefs, shepherds, fisherman, farmers, nonne, and guardians who power this country’s extraordinary culinary traditions. From the pasta temples of Rome to the multicultural markets of Sicily to the family-run, fish-driven trattorias of Lake Como, Pasta, Pane, Vino captures in a breathtaking tribute the diversity of Italian regional food culture.
