Mia nonna mangiava i fiori

Danesi – Massari

The book doesn’t represent a botanic publication, but the flowers are narrated by the journalist Giacomo Danesi with a certain irony and with historic as well as mythological tales that rarely fit into specialized publications.

The gastronomic and pastry recipes, using flowers obviously, are Iginio Massari’s, the most famous pastry chef in Italy and one of the most known in the world. These recipes make this unknown publication unique.

Therefore this masterpiece, not only does it represent a compendium of cookery, but it’s also a fun and pleasant life story.
