Chickens Eat Pasta is the tale of how a young Englishwoman starts a new life after watching a video showing a chicken eating spaghetti in a mediaeval hill village in central Italy. Unlike some recent bestsellers, this is not simply an account of a foreigner’s move to Italy, but a love story written from the unusual perspective of both within and outside of the story. As events unfold, the strong storyline carries with it a rich portrayal of Italian life from the inside, with a supporting cast of memorable characters. Along the way, the book explores and captures the warmth and colour of Italy, as well as some of the cultural differences – between England and Italy, but also between regional Italian lifestyles and behaviour. It is a story with a happy ending. The author and her husband are still married, with three children, who love the old house on the hill (now much restored) almost as much as she does. Chickens Eat Pasta is Clare’s autobiography, and ultimately a love story – with the house itself and with the man that Clare met there and went on to marry. If you yearn for a happy ending, you won’t be disappointed. It’s a story that proves anything is possible if you only try.

Italian village, where "all things are made to be as enjoyable as possible." " Lisa St Aubin de Teran's intuitive sense of place, her affection for the people around her, and her appreciation for native Italian grace make this a memorable book that can stand beside the best accounts of Italian life.

A brisk and highly readable account of the author's adventures in journalism, spanning more than half a century. Richard McNeill grew up in South Africa but his career took him from Johannesburg to New York and London, where he spent 20 years on the Daily Express. “As it turned out, becoming an Editor with a capital E was the best thing that never happened to me,” he writes. Instead he enjoyed a life of “enormous satisfaction” as a reporter, foreign correspondent, sub-editor, feature writer, magazine publisher, editorial consultant and celebrity profiler, while also pursuing his passion for typographical design. Back in South Africa he spent 11 years on the Johannesburg Sunday Times, and later helped produce South Africa’s Daily Sun, the post-apartheid tabloid aimed at the emerging black market, turning it into the country’s biggest-selling daily newspaper. He lives in Lake Michelle, Western Cape.

Finally a book that combines the fresh, exuberant flavors of great Italian food with the ease and comfort of a slow cooker. Michele Scicolone, a best-selling author and an authority on Italian cooking, shows how good ingredients and simple techniques can lift the usual “crockpot” fare into the dimension of fine food. Pasta with Meat and Mushroom Ragu, Osso Buco with Red Wine, Chicken with Peppers and Mushrooms: These are dishes that even the most discriminating cook can proudly serve to company, yet all are so carefree that anyone with just five or ten minutes of prep time can make them on a weekday and return to perfection. Simmered in the slow cooker, soups, stews, beans, grains, pasta sauces, and fish are as healthy as they are delicious. Polenta and risotto, “stir-crazy” dishes that ordinarily need careful timing, are effortless. Meat loaves come out perfectly moist, tough cuts of meat turn succulent, and cheesecakes emerge flawless.

From a ‘baby salesman’ in the UK marine market, to global success in the naval defence industry, Gordon Gray invites the reader to join him overseas as he recounts the trials and tribulations he faced as a naval salesman. This book describes many of the events and experiences that a salesman, operating in the international naval defence market, will come across in the course of daily life. Amusing incidents, successes and failures all contribute to the lessons Gordon learns as he is exposed to life in the global market. He picks up tips and tricks along the way and becomes accustomed to culture shock. Keen to learn the ropes from the start, Gordon is sent as far as Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea and the Middle East. Business in the Middle East is very different from that in the Far East and whilst successes are achieved, they are rarely without immense patience and determination, rather than being due to the gift of the gab. From an initial dislike of India on his first visit in 1985, Gordon grows to love the country and develops a deep admiration for its industries and its people. As Gordon reflects on his nomadic life as a naval salesman, he concludes that a career in sales is often misunderstood and is by no means an experience that is suited to all. If You Can’t Take A Joke is a captivating travel memoir that offers the reader an insight into the life of a salesman. This humourous adventure with a relaxed writing style will be enjoyed by readers of travel writing and individuals working in sales in any capacity.

The growing interest in health risks associated with toxigenic fungi and related mycotoxins has led to the development of a number of research projects during the past decade in several European countries and a great deal of information has been produced on the natural occurrence of mycotoxins in plants, foods and feeds. The differences in environmental conditions (temperature, light, rainfall etc. ) and in exposed cultivated plants (type of cereals, cultivars etc. ) in the distinct European countries have significantly influenced the distribution of specific toxigenic fungi and related mycotoxicological problems. In addition, biogeographically structured lineages within some important toxigenic fungi have been recently discovered, of reproductive isolation. Transglobal showing a long evolutionary history transposition of plant products seems to have significantly contributed to the spreading of toxigenic species and lineages worldwide. Therefore, the migration of agriculturally important toxigenic fungi generated by trade exchanges may represent a major source of inoculum for new plant diseases in Europe and for a wider genetic diversity of local populations. It was our goal to provide the reader with an update of researches and surveys on the natural occurrence of toxigenic fungi and mycotoxins performed at a European level during the last 5-10 years. The editors are extremely grateful to the EU-COST-835 "Agriculturally important toxigenic fungi" for the financial support that allowed a number of European scientists to meet several times over the past five years to collaborate and exchange information about research advances on toxigenic fungi and mycotoxins.

Christopher H. Warren arrived in Sorano in 1988. Enticed by the exotic and ageless town in its lovely state of ruin, and the promise of a good quality of life, he soon learned to speak even the local Italian dialect, and became deeply involved in traditional town activities—including making his own wine. In this book which derives its name from “The Infinite,” a poem by Italian philosopher and writer, Giacomo Leopardi, he relates what brought him to the Tuscan hilltown, what has kept him there, and what living there has taught him about life. Drawing on his education in anthropology and his expertise as a photographer, he shares a visually stunning and thoughtfully considered study of the life of a Tuscan community that has been his home for the past thirty years. From renovating a home, creating a garden, interviewing old inhabitants, investigating traditional life, and photographing the abandoned far side of town, he offers a genuine account of the past and present of a world that is seldom revealed.
