Book Description

By the author of the international bestseller The Hills of Tuscany and the New York Times Notable Book A Vineyard in Tuscany: making the Tuscan life-style your own.

This sun-drenched land has become synonymous with the ideal life. But it didn’t happen by chance. Since the Etruscans, the independence-loving Tuscans have treated their breathtaking countryside with sagacious respect and built hamlets and hill towns in which they perfected a culture of simplicity, beauty, neighborliness, good food, and love of daily life.

Ferenc Máté has lived in Tuscany for twenty years. Through personal experience and anecdotal history he explores the sources of this idyllic existence, which provides continuous economic stability, physical and emotional security, and a fortifying sense of belonging. From their organic gardens to their mouthwatering cuisine, from high-quality, craftsmen-made products and family-run businesses, to the joys centered in human contact and community, Tuscans live a healthy, all-senses-satisfying, emotionally rich life. Máté―engaging, funny, and insightful―nudges us all to live like Tuscans. With our frantic world so storm-tossed and rudderless, this might just be the book for our times.
