Illustrated with colour photographs. Signed by the author on the ½-title page: "For Simon, enjoy my stories. Anna Tasca Lanza" - unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. From the introduction: “Food preparation at Regaleali follows the time-honoured concepts and methods that absorbed the culinary traditions of Sicily’s conquerors to create a distinctive culinary tradition with very ancient roots. Sicily, which was at the crossroads of the Mediterranean world, was ruled first by the Creeks; for a time the city of Siracusa on the southern coast of Sicily was the gastronomic capital of the Mediterranean. Sicilian cheese, whether caciocavallo or pecorino, is still made the ancient Creek way. It is a primitive and laborious method, but the cheese is like no other in the world.”
