About the Book

A self-taught culinary virtuoso, Francesco Bracali is one of Italy’s top chefs. He and his brother, Luca, a sommelier, own the two-Michelin-stars restaurant Bracali in Massa Marittima, Tuscany. Once an unpretentious tavern run by their parents, the brothers turned it into a fine dining place where they revisited the region’s rich gastronomic traditions in an innovative way.
Their revolutionary approach—a novelty at first—today boasts international recognition. This book examines Tuscany’s culinary history and analyzes the Bracali brothers’ interpretation of traditional dishes and fine wine.
