Cucina Povera – Cooking in a Medieval Village

As part of this close knit community and an active volunteer in the Quartiere of the village called Pianello, we were striving to raise money to save a Church from disintegration, and then to save a garden from becoming a car park. Together with my friends in Quartiere Pianello, and friends internationally, I put together this book using their recipes and their photos to produce a modest quantity of our own English language cookbook, with a few short stories, which we then offered as part of our fundraising campaign.

The fundraising was successful! We saved the church and we saved the garden – and we hope everyone is enjoying trying out village recipes.
