Gastronomy is seen as taking relish in food and not as a philosophy or a way of life to be espoused in Penne with Ink, by Apicius, the pen name of Yiannis Efstathiadis. Rather than dealing with food as a display of wealth or of socialite behaviour, this work treats it as stimulating ingredient which functions on many levels, both in everyday life and in entertainment.
In this book, the author illuminates how the sense of taste is transformed into an inseparable part of memory (as it is in Proust).
Penne with Ink gathers together a tempting ensemble of gourmet knowledge finely blended with literature, cinema and the visual arts.
Apicius sets food in context as the offspring and product of long-lived social and cultural traditions.
With his attractive combination of humour, knowledge and sheer enjoyment, the author is sure to win new adherents to the multifarious delights of gastronomy.
