Italian afternoons now end with an expanded concept of food and wine. It's not just some pizza and wine. Sophisticated food and incredible cocktails are found at "aperitivo" time in Italy, particularly the major cities in the north where sophistication is abundant. Marisa Huff has written this brililant book about the hot spot and delectable ideas for the close of an Italian day. You can find the whole review over at Huffington.
The beverate is Watermelon Spritz: Campari, watermelon juice and proseco. Plus some surprises. You'll see my version blogged her for the coming weekend. Yes, the photo by Andrea Fazzari is delicious. Aperitivo is the perfect blend of text, recipes and photos. It's a visual journey that you will love.
