Summary This gorgeous book is devoted to Liguria, Italy's picturesque and culturally rich region that boasts a breathtaking Mediterranean seacoast and its mountainous "backyard." Downie's lively account of the fascinating history and lifestyle is matched by Harris's photographs of Liguria's dramatic locales, from Camogli, the "saltiest, most piratical town" on the Mediterranean, to the interior, a vast, vertical garden dotted with towns carved from the rugged landscape. Enchanted Liguria also includes rarely photographed interiors of grand aristocratic villas and elegant houses, some of which have been family homes since before the unification of Italy. Thirty recipes from the region's best chefs reflect the taste of Liguria in a celebration of herbs, marvelous pastas, breads and seafood. The appendix is a guide to museums, villas, specialty food stores and workshops. Enchanted Liguria is a practical, essential and beautiful tribute
