1899. ELINA COLOMBINI, A GENTLEWOMAN IN THE KITCHEN

9,00 IVA inclusa

Francesca Colombini is a “Tuscan from Montalcino” (in Siena these subtitles  make a difference) and belongs to a family in which everyone has always left evidence of everything. The author would sometimes go digging through the papers of her paternal grandmother, Elina Colombini Padelletti, in the family archives. Here Signora Francesca has sought out the letters, the memoranda, the notes left in books or on yellowed photographs of a world gone by, often times marvelous and heartrending. Especially so in the recipes.
