Orange. Routes in the Culture, Nature and Food & Wine Opulence of Sicily CARMELO CHIARAMONTE, ELVIRA ASSENZA (eds.) With an Introduction by Franco Battiato With 90 original photos and 15 original tempera and India ink plates pp. 228 | 23x23 cm | December 2012 Shortlisted for Best Single Subject Cook Book – Gourmand Award 2013 (Second place) English Translation Granted This opulent, amazing volume pays homage to the Queen of Citrus Fruits and its cultural, artistic and culinary aspects. Orange truly is the symbol of life, work and health. And this book is also a rural knowledge compendium. In the first part, we find out how orange has been introduced in the West farming. The second part focuses on the cultural and artistic sides of this fruit, with an interesting but easy excursus on Sicilian popular poetry, tongue-twisters and idioms. Then, it tells about orange’s very healthy use in popular and herbal medicine. Next, engaging short essays by musicologist Giovanni Bietti, film critic Gianluca Farinelli, painter Salvo Russo and L’Espresso Magazine’s wine-taster Fabio Rizzari about the unsuspected role of oranges in this field of human arts. In the third part, 18 interviews with Sicilian orange-lovers (and workers), such as pastry cooks, confectioners, an 80-year-old housewife and farmers, reveal the secrets of this wonderful, shining little globe of sweet taste. The fourth part is about some peculiarities throughout the last 500 years of Italian culinary that show how you can find orange where you least expect it. This great book has the best ending possible: Carmelo Chiaramonte, wandering cook, gives us historical and modern recipes that use orange tree in all its tasty magnificence. Carmelo Chiaramonte is a well-known Italian chef. He deals with nomadic cooking, combining tastes and flavors all around the world. Author and anchor of Gambero Rosso Tv programs, he wrote, with Tony Saccucci, Aesthetics of Porcini Mushrooms for Edizioni Estemporanee. Elvira Assenza is a researcher and associate professor in General Linguistics and Sociolinguistics at University of Messina. She analyzes ethno-linguistics aspects of the language.

Aesthetics of Porcini Mushrooms between Philosophy and Taste TONY SACCUCCI, CARMELO CHIARAMONTE pp. 109 | 2010| Second reprint Rights sold to France (Editions Balland) A surprising success: 3500 copies sold Fruits of the Earth and fruits of the Mind join together with passion and cleverness in a unique essay about Porcini mushrooms picking. Written with a clear, ironic and fond language, with many references to Western philosophy (Hegel can be really useful to understand if, in Porcini picking, quality is more important than quantity), this original book takes cue from why people go looking for mushrooms to try to think about life and endless man’s quest. A quest that doesn’t stop neither in the kitchen. In fact the second part of the essay is about Porcini handling for cooking. But Chiaramonte, a “wandering cook”, one of the most creative and renowned Italian chef worldwide, doesn’t give simple recipes but he suggests delicious, never-seen-before combinations that create a chromatic and olfactory method to make great Porcini dishes. “A sort of mycology guide to existence. A book about philosophy and cooking, because who goes mushrooms picking, someway, is sublimating the philosophical question par excellence: what is our life?” IlSole24Ore

Tony Saccucci is a philosophy teacher and a mushrooms picker. He deals also with sustainable development. Carmelo Chiaramonte is a well-known Italian chef. He deals also with nomadic cooking, combining tastes and flavors all around the world. Author and anchor of Gambero rosso tv programs, he has published other cookbooks. ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Red Bubbles A Sparkling Journey in Lambrusco Land LUCA BUREI, ALFONSO ISINELLI pp. 96 | October 2012 This is a journey through Emilia region, following the trail of Lambrusco, the slightly sparkling Emilian red wine, strongly connected with its territory and identity. In the 70s and 80s, Lambrusco was one of the biggest selling import wines abroad, then lately it suffered a sad decline but now it seems to do better. This guidebook is also an acknowledgement of Lambrusco Renaissance. New and old wine-makers succeeded in making Lambrusco be rediscovered and revalued by wine experts and lovers, thanks to its great taste and “heart”. Besides, Lambrusco is a slightly sparkling wine that matches with a lot of savoury food, so it’s perfect to really enjoy a dinner in company. Red Bubbles is a nice, smart book, written with simplicity, clarity and fun, that goes with the reader among the wine rows and cellars, talking about moon and fermentation, ballroom dancing and long tables overloaded with delicious food and wine. It is enriched by a short digression about white Emilian bubbles too. Luca Burei and Alfonso Isinelli are also authors of The 99 Best Maisons of Champagne (IV edition forthcoming). In this guidebook, they put aside for a while French bubbles to talk instead about Italian red bubbles, with the sparkle that many readers have learnt to love.
