Jaquo is delighted to showcase this wonderful new release!  Featuring more than eighty recipes along with a wonderful look at the ‘street scene’ that is rising there, unknown to many.  It is a must have for both those who enjoying cooking and for those who enjoy the local side of a country when traveling.

On a virtual book tour hosted by Italy Book Tours, the author has written a lovely book including charming photos–a glimpse you won’t want to miss.

The Tour

Book Description:

Italy’s classic recipes are well known the world over, but few are aware of the dishes that reign on the flourishing Italian street-food scene. Hidden behind the town squares, away from the touristy restaurants, and down back streets are little-known gems offering up some of Italy’s tastiest and best-kept secret dishes that the locals prize.

ITALIAN STREET FOOD is not just another Italian cookbook; it delves into truly authentic Italian fare—the kind of secret recipes that are passed down through generations.

Learn how to make authentic polpettine, arancini, stuffed cuttlefish, cannolis, and fritters, and perfect your gelato-making skills with original flavors such as lemon and basil or affogato and aperol. With beautiful stories and stunning photography throughout, ITALIAN STREET FOOD delivers an authentic, lesser known take on a much loved cuisine.
