Rick Steves with Fred Plotkin

Italy and its superb cuisine draw hungry visitors from all over the world. They come to savor famous foods such as pasta, pizza, gelati, and sun-kissed fruits and vegetables. But then they are dazzled by the depth and variety of glorious local dishes and wines from Italy’s 20 regions.

Rick Steves a popular expert on European travel, joins Fred Plotkin, a specialist in Italian cuisine and culture, for a deep dive into many of Italy’s secret culinary pleasures. They discuss the unique ways in which Italy’s cuisine developed, the food specialties of Italy’s different regions, and what travelers miss if they only visit Rome, Florence, and Venice. And their shared insights about Italy’s hidden gems ensure that a trip to Italy is unforgettable. As well as delicious. 

Their co-authored book, Rick Steves Italy for Food Lovers (Avalon), is available for purchase.
