More About This Title Al Dente


In Al Dente, William Black travels the length and breadth of Italy to get to the roots of Italian food. His quest for the most delicious and authentic cooking and the very finest ingredients takes him to wonderfully familiar places and hidden delights. He drinks great coffee in Turin, and views the mattanza, the annual tuna catch, off the coast of Sardinia. And as he eats his way to the country's culinary heart, he unearths the fascinating story of his own family's role in Italian history.


“Like Anthony Bourdain’s A Cook’s Tour, Black’s travel memoir shows its author following his stomach in search of tasty adventures and exceptional foods…An engaging culinary travelogue with many odd and unusual recipes.”  —Publishers Weekly
