"L’appetito vien mangiando!" or "Appetite comes while you are eating." Vicky arrives in Tuscany to study the language and culture of Italy, but soon falls in love with charismatic chef Gianfranco and starts to learn the art of Italian cooking in his trattoria. On Sunday nights, after benches are stacked on tables, they explore the countryside by car, passing glassy lakes and ancient hill towns. This colorful and intoxicating gastro-memoir takes you behind the scenes of romantic restaurants and bars in Tuscany, Umbria, Elba, and Perugia. Interspersed with recipes, humor, and heartbreak, it will leave you entranced and with a hankering for tagliatelle and truffles.
