In this cookbook Trine Hahnemann shares her love for a special place in North Tuscany called Peralta, where she stays every year with her family. Peralta is a hamlet in the mountains where people, nature and culture melt into one. It is the kind of place where time makes you stop and reflect to enjoy life a little bit more. Here Trine finds inspiration to her ideas, to do nothing, and to the next meal. Peralta is a place for stories about a good life. The stories come alive through Lars Ranek´s amazing pictures that explore the beauty and uniqueness of the place. For Trine and Lars Peralta is the quintessential dream about Italy. The difference, however, is: this is not a dream. It is the real thing. The book has 90 recipes - a mix of Trine´s Italian cooking and local dishes and includes stories about the local people and their produce.
