We are so excited to welcome Robert Camuto, prize-winning author and journalist who has been a columnist for the Wine Spectator since 2008 reporting on the wines and culture of Italy. Please join us at Ciao Bruto! on Thursday, March 9th from 5:30 to 7:00 for a reading and signing of his new book South of Somewhere: Wine, Food and the Soul of Italy.
“Mr. Camuto succeeds in capturing southern Italy at just the right moment, when a younger generation, better educated and more worldly than their parents, is taking over. They want to improve farming, make wine with more precision and sell it for profits around the world rather than pennies locally, and they want to do it without compromising cultural traditions….
…Food and wine are entwined in southern Italy. None of Mr. Camuto’s visits to producers proceeded, apparently, without great meals reflecting the power of the local cuisines. In his CNN series “Searching for Italy,” Stanley Tucci touched the surface of how Italian cuisine reflects its people. In “South of Somewhere,” Mr. Camuto gets to the heart of the matter.”
- Eric Asimov, The New York Times
