Tuscan Women Cook: Nonnas. Memories. Recipes: With foreign travel still problematical at best, one way to experience the world is through books such as this one, an exceptional compendium of enticing recipes shared by the "nonnas" of the medieval Tuscany village of Montefollonico and neighboring towns. Collected by Coleen Kirnan, the owner and host of the culinary vacation operation Tuscan Woman Cook, the collection offers more than 50 recipes adapted to home kitchens; cooking techniques and tips; as well as striking photos, all designed to evoke a total cooking experience of a Tuscan kitchen. With each dish, from antipasti to zuppe, you can create your own Italian itinerary without leaving your home (at least for now). $35; https://tuscanwomencook.com
