Amore and Amaretti


Right there on the cover this book has all the key elements of a book that will grab attention, doesn't it? Love. Food. Tuscany.

More a memoir than a cookbook, more a love story than a travelogue, this delightful book takes you backward and forward with the author between Australia and Italy as she ricochets between lovers over a period of several decades.

Although her devastatingly attractive Italian lover is volatile, he is an inspired chef and, due much to her involvement with him, is her development of an understanding and appreciation of food. And this proves to be every bit as riveting as her lovelife.

Across the pages of this saga, Cosford has strewn recipes collected along the way as she matures and comes to terms with herself, men in general, and her most abiding and constant love - generous, abundant, satisfyingly good food.

Amore and Amaretti, a tale of love and food in Tuscany, Victoria Cosford, Wakefield Press, 2010, paperback, rrp A$24.95.
