Acclaimed author and food journalist Katie Parla takes you on a tour through the beloved and widespread culinary traditions from the regional cuisines of southern Italy. Parla shares rich recipes, both original and reimagined, along with historical and cultural insights that encapsulate the miles of rugged beaches, sheep-dotted mountains, meditatively quiet towns, and, most important, culinary traditions unique to this precious piece of Italy. With just a bite of the Involtini alla Piazzetta from farm-rich Campania, a taste of Giurgiulena from the sugar-happy kitchens of Calabria, a forkful of ’U Pan’ Cuott’ from mountainous Basilicata, a morsel of Focaccia from coastal Puglia, or a mouthful of Pizz e Foje from quaint Molise, you’ll discover what makes the food of the Italian south unique.
Join Katie Parla for an Author Talk celebrating Food of the Italian South! Katie will be in conversation with our Culinary Director Amanda Coba, who will just have returned from traveling throughout southern Italy. Please note the author will sign copies of the book purchased at Book Larder.
