Editorial Reviews

“Irresistible…a sensous book for a sensous countryside." Minneapolis Star Tribune
“This beautifully written memoir about taking chances, living in Italy, loving a house, and, always, the pleasures of food, would make a perfect gift for a loved one. But it’s so delicious, read it first yourself.” USA Today
“Paints a vivid description of the town, the people, and the lush surrounding countryside of rolling hills and vineyards. A poet and a gourmet cook, Mayes includes a number of chapters on food, replete with classic Italian recipes to further whet the appetite.” Irish Times (Dublin)
