Fred Plotkin's recent Q&A in the NYTimes with copious restaurant recommendation for all Italy
Thanks for the heads up barber.I used Fred's "Italy for the Gourmet Traveller" as my primary source on a trip twelve years ago and I must say it was the very best (along with "Guide to Cajun Country") guide book I have ever seen.His knowledge is encycopoedic on all matters food (restaurants,markets,etc.).I feel sure a trip to Italy with Fred as the guide would be amazing-and I don't even like opera.A truel great resource.Thanks again barber.
Dear Chowhounders, Thanks for the support. My NY Times blog on Italy actually came on 4 dates over 9 days. First there was an introduction and it was followed by 3 big batches of questions and answers. Here are the links:
