In Florentine, Emiko Davis takes us on a stroll through the streets of Florence, past bakeries and pastry shops bustling with espresso sippers, colourful markets, busy trattorias, butchers, hole-in-the-wall wine bars and late-night gelaterias.
She stays true to the most classic recipes and traditions of the Renaissance city – which inspired her to start her eponymous blog five years ago while living in Florence – revealing an unpretentious and unchanging cuisine that tells the unique story of its city, dish by dish.
'Emiko Davies' work is not a casual appreciation of Italian cooking – it is a studied, observant, and celebratory one. To see – and cook – Florence's food traditions through Emiko's recipes, research, and immersive photography is to gain a deeper understanding of the city that you're like to get in years of visits.' – Kristen Miglore, Executive Editor, Food52
