Publisher's Synopsis

The Italian eastern coastline of the Adriatic Sea runs from the heel of the boot-shaped peninsula at the Ionian Sea to the northern waters of the Gulf of Trieste. Along its length are rugged rocky coastlines, sandy stretches of beach, lagoons and wetlands. Spindly wooden fishing piers, white-washed walls, colourful villages and sea-facing piazze dot the 750-mile coastline. The food of the Adriatic mirrors the memories and traditions of peoples past and present who have lived on its shores, with ingredients reflecting the climate and terrain.

Adriatico's seven chapters each showcase one of its distinct regions' culinary character. Each community prepares their preferred pasta, rice, polenta, meat and seafood dishes with a unique flair. Join Paola on this beautiful journey as she travels the length of this unexplored coastline, passing through Puglia and the Venetian Lagoon, with its fifty islands, to find ancient food traditions still thriving.
