I own over a thousand cookbooks, but I have never been so enthralled by a cookbook as I was when I saw and read "The Tuscan Sun Cookbook" by Frances and Edward Mayes. From the very first beautiful photograph of Frances spoon feeding Edward and the mesmerizing opening paragraph--"The Choreography of the Kitchen"--I knew this cookbook would immediately rank with my all-time favorites.

Steven Rothfeld's stunning photos make their world sing, come truly alive.
