The Maremma landscape that inspired the young Giosue Carducci is here recounted by the author Brunetta Lugioli through the recipes of the area, which speak of hard work and patience, but also of lunches with friends, cheerful and a little too spirited, just as the Poet liked them.
Rhymes and Recipes in Giosue Carducci is a poetic-gastronomic tour of the Tuscan Maremma,between San Guido, Bolgheri and Castagneto, in that land that still releases the scents, flavours,proud and generous nature of its people, intact and the same, today as then, when they inspired the Maremma poems.
Brunetta Lugioli was born in Castagneto Carducci. She lives in Florence, where she has taught at primary and secondary schools. Today she dedicates herself to studying recipes from all over the world, their history, researching the ingredients to make them and finally, trying and trying again, tasting the final result, which always gives great satisfaction.
