The Best Books On Piedmont

lake-antrona-piedmont-pix.jpg

I have selected some superb books on Piedmont. Books I really love.

These are books that should be read equally by those who have never been to Piedmont and by those who love this region as much as I do.

They passionately evoke the extraordinary beauty of Piedmont.

A Passion for Piedmont: Italy's Most Glorious Regional Table

This book is great, after reading it, one of my Australian site visitors fell so in love with Piedmont that they have now visited twice and are hoping to live there one day. Not much I can add to that really, if a book can have such an effect it must be excellent.

Autumn in Piemonte: Food and Travels in Italy's Northwest

An absolutely beautiful book, the author is both poet and cook, brilliantly evoking atmosphere and sharing Piedmont's great recipes and food.
