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.
Not interested in Piedmont? Perhaps view my selection of the best books on Sardinia here.
Those on Le Marche you can find in our Le Marche books section.
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.
is a delightful book about the mouthwatering culinary tradition of
Piedmont. The book succeeds gloriously in sharing the author's passion
for Piedmont, home to Italy's greatest cuisine. This is not a recipe
book but an exploration of Piedmont, its peoples and their history and
how all these elements have succeeded in producing gourmet heaven.
Victor D'Amico and his wife Yvonne are American, of Italian descent. This book is an interesting exploration of Piedmont through their family in Piedmont. The book takes a languid journey through Piedmont. Exploring the people, places and cuisine of this little known Italian Region.
A comprehensive guide to Piedmont covering everything from where to stay through to where to eat and is full of fascinating things to do. Features lot's of wonderful little places, far off the beaten track, that would be almost impossible to discover by yourself. The guide is quite old now but it is still relevant - things change very slowly in Piedmont.
An absolutely beautiful book, the author is both poet and cook, brilliantly evoking atmosphere and sharing Piedmont's great recipes and food. The photos are exceptional and together with the passionate writing of the author they will have you longing to follow in her footsteps. I particularly loved the chapters on the Langhe and the one on the Gourmet University which must surely be unique. My favourite of this selection of books on Piedmont.
It would be great if you would share it with us.
