              See You in the Piazza: New Places To Discover in Italy (EPUB ebook)

              By Mayes, Frances

              The Roman Forum, the Leaning Tower, the Piazza San Marco: these are the sights synonymous with Italy. But such landmarks only scratch the surface of this magical country's offerings. In See You in the Piazza, Frances Mayes introduces us to the Italy only the locals know, as she a...nd her husband, Ed, eat and drink their way through fifteen regions - from Friuli to Sardinia. Along the way, she seeks out the cultural and historic gems not found in traditional guidebooks. Frances conjures the enchantment of the backstreets, the hubbub of the markets, the dreamlike wonder of that space between lunch and dinner when a city cracks open to those who would wander or when a mind is drawn into the pages of a delicious book - and discloses to us the secrets that only someone who is on intimate terms with a place could find.

              Bella Tuscany: The Sweet Life in Italy (EPUB ebook)

              By Mayes, Frances

              Frances Mayes, whose enchanting international bestseller UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN made the world fall in love with Tuscany, invites us back for a delightful new season of friendship, festivity and food. Having spent her summers in Tuscany for the past several years, Frances Mayes rel...ished the opportunity to experience the pleasures of PRIMAVERA, an Italian spring. A sabbatical from teaching in San Francisco allowed her to return to Cortona-- and her beloved house, Bramasole-- just as the first green appeared on the rocky hillsides. BELLA TUSCANY is a passionate and lyrical account of her continuing love affair with Italy. Now truly at home there, Mayes writes of her deepening connection to the land, her flourishing friendships with local people and the joys of art, food and wine. It is also a memoir of a season of change, and of renewed possibility. As spring becomes summer she revives Bramasole's lush gardens, meets the challenges of learning a new language, tours regions from Sicily to the Veneto and faces transitions in her family life. Spiced with recipes from Mayes' Tuscan kitchen and written in the sensuous and evocative prose that has become her hallmark, BELLA TUSCANY is a celebration of the sweet life in Italy. Praise for UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN 'As dreamily indulgent as a long, long Italian lunch on the Tuscan hillside...' THE DAILY TELEGRAPH, Sydney 'For anyone who loves Italy and its food, this book, with its scatter of recipes, is an affirmation.' THE WEST AUSTRALIAN 'Oozes with the richness and flavour of your most memorable Italian meal.' AUSTRALIAN GOOD TASTE magazine

              By Mayes, Frances

              A YEAR IN THE WORLD is classic Frances Mayes - a celebration of the allure of travel, of unexpected pleasures found in unlikely places and a joyous sense of adventure and discovery. Both a passionate traveller and the ideal travel companion, Mayes allows us to hitch a ride as she... wanders off the beaten track and discovers twelve new special places in the world. Using her beloved Tuscany as a home base, she sets off to find hidden treasures in Spain and Portugal, France, the British Isles, and the Mediterranean world of Turkey, Greece, the south of Italy and North Africa. Along the way, she cooks up a storm in Portugal, follows the classic Homeric voyage across the Aegean, revels in the good life in Santorini and hunkers down in a stone house draped with bougainvillea in Crete. In Turkey she sails the ancient coast, snorkels over sunken Byzantine towns and hikes to ancient archeological sites. She takes a literary pilgrimage in Burgundy and gathers ideas in the gardens of Scotland and England. In Morocco, she explores the city of Fez, discovers the ideal place to live in Mantova - and much, much more. Weaving together the simple pleasures of everyday life with fascinating insights into the history, culture and culinary delights of her temporary homes in the world, this is travel writing at its best.

              A Year in the World (Hardback, Large type / large print edition)

              By Mayes, Frances

              The author who unforgettably captured the experience of starting a new life in Tuscany in bestselling travel memoirs expands her horizons to immerse herself--and her readers--in the sights, aromas, and treasures of twelve new special places. A Year in the World is vintage Frances... Mayes--a celebration of the allure of travel, of serendipitous pleasures found in unlikely locales, of memory woven into the present, and of a joyous sense of quest. An ideal travel companion, Frances Mayes brings to the page the curiosity of an intrepid explorer, remarkable insights into the wonder of the everyday, and a compelling narrative style that entertains as it informs. With her beloved Tuscany as a home base, Mayes travels to Spain, Portugal, France, the British Isles, and to the Mediterranean world of Turkey, Greece, the South of Italy, and North Africa. In Andalucia, she relishes the intersection of cultures. She cooks in Portugal, gathers ideas in the gardens of England and Scotland, takes a literary pilgrimage to Burgundy, discovers an ideal place to live in Mantova, and explores the essential Moroccan city of Fez. She rents houses among ordinary residents, shops at neighborhood markets, wanders the back streets, and everywhere contemplates the concept of home. While in Greece, she follows the classic Homeric voyage across the Aegean, lives in a bougainvillea-draped stone house in Crete, and then drives deep into the Mani. In Turkey with friends, she sails the ancient coast, hiking to archaeological sites and snorkeling over sunken Byzantine towns. Weaving together personal perceptions and informed commentary on art, architecture, history, landscape, and social and culinary traditionsof each area, Mayes brings the immediacy of life in her temporary homes to the reader. An illuminating and passionate book that will be savored by all who loved Under the Tuscan Sun, A Year in the World is travel writing at its peak.
