  • Am bursting with pride to be able to say that Florentine took away the awards for Best Designed Cookbook *and* the coveted Best Designed Book at <a href=/user/theabda/1>@theabda</a> awards last night, thanks to the incredibly talented book designer Allison Colpoys and Kasia Gadecki (the duo also behind <a href=/user/thesouvenirsociety/1>@thesouvenirsociety</a>) for the beautiful marbled cover design and details and to Allison for the entire internal design too.

  • I've quietly set up shop. Just a little one, online, where I've got a few of my favourite prints from around the Tuscan coast, photographs that I took for Acquacotta. They're all taken in film, because I'm a bit old fashioned that way, and printed beautifully in Melbourne on archival cotton rag paper. They're small, so make nice gifts and look good as a collection together. They're an extremely limited edition, if all goes well I may put some others in there, perhaps some of the black and white photographs from Florentine (also film) and even other sizes. Baby steps for now. Please do check it out at emikodavies.bigcartel.com/

    You captured it all... glee, cackle, raucous laugh.. the lot! We heard it all and the love too ❤️❤️❤️


    Marie Whiting:
    @emikodavies in my former life I worked in Early Childhood Education. Nothing, & I mean NOTHING else can calm a baby, toddler or pre-schooler as quickly & magically as bubbles do! There is something otherworldly that exists for every child when they see or play with them. A few years ago I was at a camp with the high school I as working at here in Sydney with students who have mild intellectual disability. It poured rain (camp was at the beach!) but I'd brought up bubbles for everyone. We sat outside on the verandah whilst rain poured down & bubbles were blown for a long time. There was such calm & playfulness & wonder all rolled in one. It was superb. Long live the humble bubble blowers in our technological world ✨

  • A refreshing slice of California in breezy Livorno at newly opened <a href=/user/icinquegrani/1>@icinquegrani</a> where you can munch on Reuben sandwiches (on proper housemade sourdough) and Cobb salads. There's a great kids corner to keep little ones happy (and, let's be honest, parents too) and a counter top display of treats like canneles, carrot cake and apple pie. I'll have more on a post soon with an updated guide to Livorno and the Tuscan coast, cannot wait to come back to this spot for more this summer!

  • Being by the sea brings out the Tarantino heritage in my Tuscan husband. He bought fresh mussels and made a chickpea puree. I made fresh cavatelli from stoneground ancient grains. We put it all together, with some big fat chilli peppers, olive oil and a little garlic. Spoon the chickpea puree (loosened with some of the liquid from the mussels) onto the bottom of the plates, you can also use other legumes or even potatoes. Toss together the boiled cavatelli and steamed mussels (if you like, remove half of their shells like they do in Taranto) and spoon them over the top. #cucinapugliese

  • The Maremma sure is one beautiful, rustic, rugged place. Hills covered in thick Mediterranean scrub, wild figs and prickly pears, gnarly olive trees, vine-covered farm houses, sheep, wild boars and the most beautiful waters in Tuscany. Or anywhere. In terms of food, you'll find wonderful fresh seafood, old traditions, hunting and gathering and a vegetable-lovers paradise. A gem. In case you missed it, I've got five copies of my Maremma cookbook, Acquacotta, to give away (Australian residents only!), details are on my blog {Link in profile}, and in case you're curious about a trip to this stunning corner of the world, my food and drink guide to Monte Argentario, where we used to live, is now available online (it was in print last month if you have a copy) at <a href=/user/gourmettraveller/1>@gourmettraveller</a> -- look for 'Secret Tuscany'! 🍷🍴 #Maremma #acquacottathecookbook <a href=/user/hardiegrantbooks/1>@hardiegrantbooks</a>

My husbands family is Australian so I'm now familiar with Sunday roasts, spaghetti bolognese, fairy breads and Pavlovas 😂 I have two boys. I have a long unfulfilled dream of visiting & exploring Florence one day! There is a something about the place that I love. You're living my dream!! I look forward to seeing you're posts and hopefully finding your books here. Have a lovely day 😊 bello incontrare voi! Xx

  • One of the things I've always loved about this wonderful little instagram community I've come to know is the exchange of ideas and conversation (one day I would like to write more about this because these great exchanges have even made their way into my latest cookbook!). The other day when I posted about what I should try next with elderflowers, there were so many wonderful ideas I was left with even more choice! I went with a really simple, delicate elderflower cake, a <a href=/user/nigelslater/1>@nigelslater</a> recipe, and have some milk infusing with flowers for gelato (I've finally bought my non-gadgety kitchen its first appliance -- a gelato machine, of course). Wish I could share a slice with you all -- thank you so much for this daily banter, inspiration and support! 💚

I have an old post on my blog with the recipe, inspired by Artusi's 1891 cookbook and the Armenian monks on Venice's Isola di San Lazzaro, where I worked for two autumns restoring artworks, and where I learned the secret behind their divine rose petal jam. 🌹

    @annabellehickson it's so, so special! Best kind of roses are little ones with small petals, the larger ones with thick, velvety roses don't work quite as well for jam. If you by any chance need any other flower recipes, hit me up 😉

  • Starting to get back on track after a month long illness, but it's easy to come out of my hiding place when it's a great project with this super talented lady <a href=/user/_marinadenisova_/1>@_marinadenisova_</a> shooting some favourite spots for a Florentine eating guide! (A few more faves in stories)

Am bursting with pride to be able to say that Florentine took away the awards for Best Designed Cookbook *and* the coveted Best Designed Book at @theabda awards last night, thanks to the incredibly talented book designer Allison Colpoys and Kasia Gadecki (the duo also behind @thesouvenirsociety) for the beautiful marbled cover design and details and to Allison for the entire internal design too. I feel so blessed to have had such bucket loads of talent behind the making of this book, thanks team @hardiegrantbooks @laurenbamford @deborahkaloperfoodstylist @carolines_food_stuff @mrmarkcampbell @hannahbabble @janeswillson @jemimagood #abda2017 #florentinethecookbook 🎉❤🙌
