Listening to Tuscany
Guiding light for gastro travelers, gourmands and foodies from all over the world
by Aleksandr Slyadnev
A traveling book with a tentative title “Listening to Tuscany” is a guiding light for gastro travelers, gourmands and foodies from all over the world. This is a story of a famous food photographer Aleksandr Slyadnev about his long and replete trip around the most fruitful region of Italy called Toscana.
Flavors of fresh basil, voices that speak simultaneously, vibrant colors of ripe violet eggplants and cherries; shrill, breathtaking simplicity, frankness of people and cooks scurrying around stoves with saucepans will become parts of Italy that will arise in the book.
You can find up-to-date information about restaurants honored with Michelin stars each of which is worth a standalone trip, about emotional trattories where visitors seat so close to each other that their elbows touch, about neat family-owned restaurants where conversations of guests become louder and more leisurely as empty glasses and plates are gone.
The book combines valuable pieces of advice for travelers, story about art treasures and sights of Toscana, inspiring photographs and secret local cuisine recipes. This is a guide for those of you who want to travel to the most attractive and unique corners of Italy and try new paths never discovered by tourists before.
“I have met amazing chefs from Toscana, took notes and pictures, talked to locals every day, walked and drove tens of kilometers to understand and feel people, culture, traditions and cuisine of Italy. In my book I will try to make Toscana reveal its heart and hold its arms out for you”, – says Aleksandr Slyadnev, an author of the book.
Each dish cooked in this book reminds of an emotional imprint that is left in your heart by Toscana. This in an emotional code, the key to which is lost in old warehouses of Livorno, cluttered with boxes full of freshly caught fish, in oak barrels in the taverns of Arezzo, under the arches of the cathedral in the city of Lucca, in cascades of Florentine coffee houses and tiled roofs.
