In his dark and fetid prison cell, serial killer Daniele de Robertis plans his retribution. The betrayals he has suffered haunt his dreams until, one night, he escapes. In a small, beautiful village in the Tuscan countryside a prominent lawyer and his wife are murdered. As the police inspect the scene they find nine terrifying photographs: nine women, slaughtered. It is Florentine Police Chief Michele Ferrara's worst nightmare: a case involving the untouchable men and women at the top of Italian society, a dark and powerful cult which knows no bounds, and mounting victims. Amongst a web of obsession, manipulation and violence, Ferrara must face his demons. Death Under a Tuscan Sun is an incredibly gripping and atmospheric work of detective fiction, written with incomparable authenticity by former Florentine police chief Michele Giuttari. Originally published in Italian as Il Cuore Oscuro di Firenze.

Peter Mayle hat sich seinen großen Traum erfüllt und ist in die Provence gezogen. Doch das erste Jahr ist gar nicht einfach, und immer wieder kommt es zu Missverständnissen – nicht nur, weil man die Sprache dort einfach nicht versteht, sondern auch, weil die Lebensweise der Franzosen so merkwürdig anders als die der Briten ist.

“Tuscan food tastes like itself. Ingredients are left to shine. . . . So, if on your visit, I hand you an apron, your work will be easy. We’ll start with primo ingredients, a little flurry of activity, perhaps a glass of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and soon we’ll be carrying platters out the door. We’ll have as much fun setting the table as we have in the kitchen. Four double doors along the front of the house open to the outside—so handy for serving at a long table under the stars (or for cooling a scorched pan on the stone wall). Italian Philosophy 101: la casa aperta, the open house.” —from the Introduction In all of Frances Mayes’s bestselling memoirs about Tuscany, food plays a starring role. This cuisine transports, comforts, entices, and speaks to the friendly, genuine, and improvisational spirit of Tuscan life. Both cooking and eating in Tuscany are natural pleasures. In her first-ever cookbook, Frances and her husband, Ed, share recipes that they have enjoyed over the years as honorary Tuscans: dishes prepared in a simple, traditional kitchen using robust, honest ingredients. A toast to the experiences they’ve had over two decades at Bramasole, their home in Cortona, Italy, this cookbook evokes days spent roaming the countryside for chestnuts, green almonds, blackberries, and porcini; dinner parties stretching into the wee hours, and garden baskets tumbling over with bright red tomatoes. Lose yourself in the transporting photography of the food, the people, and the place, as Frances’s lyrical introductions and headnotes put you by her side in the kitchen and raising a glass at the table. From Antipasti (starters) to Dolci (desserts), this cookbook is organized like a traditional Italian dinner. The more than 150 tempting recipes include: · Fried Zucchini Flowers · Red Peppers Melted with Balsamic Vinegar · Potato Ravioli with Zucchini, Speck, and Pecorino · Risotto Primavera · Pizza with Caramelized Onions and Sausage · Cannellini Bean Soup with Pancetta · Little Veal Meatballs with Artichokes and Cherry Tomatoes · Chicken Under a Brick · Short Ribs, Tuscan-Style · Domenica’s Rosemary Potatoes · Folded Fruit Tart with Mascarpone · Strawberry Semifreddo · Steamed Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Sauce Frances and Ed also share their tips on stocking your pantry, pairing wines with dishes, and choosing the best olive oil. Learn their time-tested methods for hand rolling pasta and techniques for coaxing the best out of seasonal ingredients with little effort. Throw on another handful of pasta, pull up a chair, and languish in the rustic Italian way of life.

A lyrical and evocative memoir from Frances Mayes, the Bard of Tuscany, about coming of age in the Deep South and the region’s powerful influence on her life. The author of three beloved books about her life in Italy, including Under the Tuscan Sun and Every Day in Tuscany, Frances Mayes revisits the turning points that defined her early years in Fitzgerald, Georgia. With her signature style and grace, Mayes explores the power of landscape, the idea of home, and the lasting force of a chaotic and loving family. From her years as a spirited, secretive child, through her university studies—a period of exquisite freedom that imbued her with a profound appreciation of friendship and a love of travel—to her escape to a new life in California, Mayes exuberantly recreates the intense relationships of her past, recounting the bitter and sweet stories of her complicated family: her beautiful yet fragile mother, Frankye; her unpredictable father, Garbert; Daddy Jack, whose life Garbert saved; grandmother Mother Mayes; and the family maid, Frances’s confidant Willie Bell. Under Magnolia is a searingly honest, humorous, and moving ode to family and place, and a thoughtful meditation on the ways they define us, or cause us to define ourselves. With acute sensory language, Mayes relishes the sweetness of the South, the smells and tastes at her family table, the fragrance of her hometown trees, and writes an unforgettable story of a girl whose perspicacity and dawning self-knowledge lead her out of the South and into the rest of the world, and then to a profound return home.

Frances Mayes, whose enchanting international bestseller UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN made the world fall in love with Tuscany, invites us back for a delightful new season of friendship, festivity and food. Having spent her summers in Tuscany for the past several years, Frances Mayes relished the opportunity to experience the pleasures of PRIMAVERA, an Italian spring. A sabbatical from teaching in San Francisco allowed her to return to Cortona-- and her beloved house, Bramasole-- just as the first green appeared on the rocky hillsides. BELLA TUSCANY is a passionate and lyrical account of her continuing love affair with Italy. Now truly at home there, Mayes writes of her deepening connection to the land, her flourishing friendships with local people and the joys of art, food and wine. It is also a memoir of a season of change, and of renewed possibility. As spring becomes summer she revives Bramasole's lush gardens, meets the challenges of learning a new language, tours regions from Sicily to the Veneto and faces transitions in her family life. Spiced with recipes from Mayes' Tuscan kitchen and written in the sensuous and evocative prose that has become her hallmark, BELLA TUSCANY is a celebration of the sweet life in Italy. Praise for UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN 'As dreamily indulgent as a long, long Italian lunch on the Tuscan hillside...' THE DAILY TELEGRAPH, Sydney 'For anyone who loves Italy and its food, this book, with its scatter of recipes, is an affirmation.' THE WEST AUSTRALIAN 'Oozes with the richness and flavour of your most memorable Italian meal.' AUSTRALIAN GOOD TASTE magazine

Die Provence - eine beschauliche Landschaft mit Dörfern, in denen nichts los ist? Der Lubéron - ein Gebirgszug in Südfrankreich, in dem der Hund begraben ist? Wer das denkt, hat noch nie eine von Peter Mayles köstlichen Schilderungen des provenzalischen Alltags gelesen! Wie bereits in "Mein Jahr in der Provence" entführt der Autor auch in diesem Buch seine Leser wieder in die farbenprächtige Landschaft Südfrankreichs. Das Leben in der Provence, das er in seinem Dorf und dessen Umgebung kennengelernt hat, ist weit entfernt von der Ruhe und Beschaulichkeit, die malerische Postkarten vorgaukeln. Im Gegenteil: In den Dörfern des Lubéron, von denen Peter Mayle erzählt, ist einiges los! Die Fortsetzung von Peter Mayles erstem Welterfolg "Mein Jahr in der Provence". Für alle Provenceliebhaber und solche, die es werden wollen!
