Book Presentation – LIGURIA SALUTE IN CUCINA
On 14th April 2016 we have the pleasure to present a wonderful book dedicated to the Ligurian Cuisine called “LIGURIA SALUTE In CUCINA _- Cinquemila metri di bellezza gusto tradizione”
It is more than a culinary travel through Liguria, imagined from the most deep abyss (over 2850m the maximum depth that Ligurian sea can reach) to the most high of the Ligurian Alpes ( Saccarello Mountain 2.200m ) for a total of 5000m of beauty.
The book was commissioned by Casa di Cura Villa Montallegro of Genoa for the project #piugustoperlavita
The most beautiful way to “taste” Liguria it is through a journey. From the sea to the mountain, from east to west, this strip of land lying on the Mediterranean sea offers thousands of different sceneries in a very narrow space. In every itinerary the food will always escort the traveler, who will read in the territory and will find in the local food clear reference on what he sees around him. Sergio Rossi and Daniela Vettori travel through the region following the link between food and territory, building a vision and an interpretation simple and unexpected. The charm of the places influenced the traditional recipes: from the ingredients that make the dish it is possible to understand the historical reasons of their development and celebrity. All the recipes are followed by the nutritional values written by Luca Spigno. This is what makes the traditional Ligurian food a modern cuisine but also something to rediscover every time.
_ Sergio Rossi the “Cucinosofo” , culinary scholar, his field of interest is history and food culture and gastronomy, studying the gastronomical tradition of different communities. It works with newspapers, magazines, locals and national televisions.
