A new cookbook on Italian food is available today, but it is much more than just a collection of recipes. Let’s Eat Italy!: Everything You Want to Know About Your Favorite Cuisine provides readers with helpful charts and images.

This lavish cookbook includes beautiful photographs and illustrated charts. It has helpful information displayed in lush pictures.

The author, François-Régis Gaudry, has previously published Let’s Eat France!, a French-focused cookbook. French cuisine is historically far more formal than Italian cuisine, making it easier to create a definitive text. However, the extensive use of charts, photos, and visual aids help contain the Italian cuisine.

Obviously trusting a Frenchman to document Italian food presents certain problems of bias. However, he is a journaliste at L’Express. On the other hand, he is the host of Très très bon on French television.

Either way, Let’s Eat Italy does promise to be be a beautiful and informative book, even if it was written by a Frenchman.
