Acquacotta is a celebration of the traditional cuisine of a lesser known part of Tuscany, the Silver Coast, which forms part of the territory of Maremma.
The book includes personal stories, memories and lessons from the people (producers, winemakers, breeders, fisherman) Emiko has met. Acquacotta champions the food Emiko loves to eat and cook - comforting, low-maintenance and easy to prepare. It's food that calls for sharing with friends or family, gathered around a big table. And like most peasant cuisine, it is about getting the best out of a few ingredients and providing a belly-filling meal that not only doesn't cost the earth, but is delicious.
