Una fiesta mobile


At the table (and under the table) with Ernest Hemingway. The travels, loves, but above all the eating and drinking of the American writer and journalist to bring his memory back to life.

Ernest Hemingway liked food; he liked it simple, ‘what people eat in the country, the kind of food that sticks to your ribs and gives you the feeling that you really have something in front of you to devote yourself to with gusto, without worrying too much about manners.’ And a bottle of wine or a cocktail was never lacking. The public figure of ‘Papa Hemingway’ has become part of modern culture, but what do we really know about the person behind the facade? Una Fiesta Mobile by Gail McDowell is a peculiar biography of the writer: his travels, his loves, but most of all his tastes in eating and drinking. Recipes for some of the delicious dishes that accompanied him will bring his memory back to life and into the kitchens. Finally, a chapter dedicated to his favorite cocktails could not be missed.
