About Mangia

Travel across Italy’s regions through food and discover the best of its produce and dishes.

Travelling Italy isn’t just about the sights, it’s also about the food. For centuries, Italy has cultivated some of the world’s finest produce, from plump tomatoes to nutty parmesan and velvety bottles of wine. It’s a country that revolves around mealtimes, and no visit is complete without experiencing these culinary traditions. Mangia guides us through Italy’s 20 regions, sharing the cuisine that defines each. Learn about their food histories and produce, discover what dishes to try (along with what drinks to pair them with), and learn about culinary festivals and experiences. You don’t have to travel to the boot to try its food, though: Every chapter includes a recipe for readers to experience a bite of Italy in their own kitchens, written by chefs who run some of the world’s best kitchens. In Italy, it’s all about la dolce vita, and there’s nothing that captures that better than a full table full of food.
