cooking in Italy

Betty | Jan 11, 2008 05:38 PM

We'll be in Italy for just under 3 weeks next summer and will have kitchen facilities in 3 of the 4 stops - 3 or 4 days each in Vernazza, Venice, and Rome. It isn't that we don't want to eat in restaurants, we will for sure, its just that on our trip a couple of years ago it made me crazy to see all that gorgeous stuff in the markets and not be able to take any back to a kitchen a play with it.

I'm assuming the kitchens will have only the most rudimentary equipment, but as long as I have a skillet and can boil water I'll have fun.

I'm wondering if there are any books youall would recommend I read about the markets. I'm reading "Paris in a Basket" (our first stop before Italy), so thought there might be something that would be fun to read and helpful about the markets in Venice and Rome. I don't need recipes particularly, just information about ingredients that I may not be familiar with, etc. We're staying in Dorsoduro and in Trastevere.
