Slow Food Guide

I apologize if it has been mentioned before, but I have not seen this. I just returned from Italy and the Slow Food guide is now published in English. It is extremely useful and was consulted repeatedly to find incredible food. I do mean “find” since it took over an hour of driving around and asking directions to discover some of our choices. The English version is called “Osteria & Locanda d’Italia” because it is a combination of the two separate Italian language books. We used one of the hotel recommendations in Asti, which was great. We used one of Rick Steves’ suggestions in Montalchino that was very nice, except he forgot to mention the part about no toilet seats or potable water. This Slow Food guide is going to be a bible for tourists looking for outstanding food and good accommodations. It includes a small but useful food dictionary. The “Marling Menu-Master for Italy” I carried didn’t have a single word from the menus I saw.
