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.

Criswell's move from New York City to Tuscany was not supposed to go like this. She had envisioned lazy mornings sipping espresso while penning a bestselling novel and jovial group dinners, just like in the movies and books about expatriate life in Italy. Then she met reality: no work, constant struggles with Italian bureaucracy to claim citizenship, and becoming the talk of the town after her torrid affair with a local fruit vendor.

Michelle Damiani was hungry for a different kind of life. Il Bel Centro tells the story of her move to a medieval village in the center of Italy with her husband, three children, and two cats. The family grapples with parenting hardships made more difficult on foreign soil, unlocks the secrets of Umbrian cuisine, and grows accustomed to the early morning sight of the baker in his underpants. All five of them weave into the fabric of the town as they lay petals and blossoms on cobblestone streets in the annual all-night flower-carpet festival. Il Bel Centro evokes the pleasures of small town Italy and opens the gate into a world where a good lunch will take one straight into dinner.

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.

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.

This book is about how David and his twin brother grew up together and in their late teens embraced Mormonism. It is about how their lives were shaped by their faith . Then how twin "Robert" began to get doubts and finally fell away from the church. He has gone on to write a book against it. The author has this book in defence of his stronger than ever belief still, in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You may be very interested in what the author has written if you're already a member of the Mormon church, more especially if you have questions or harbour doubts and would like to see why one of the twins feels betrayed, and the other doesn't, why one of them feels it is a corrupt institution, and the other believes it is the true church of Christ? Even if you're not a Mormon but a person who is intrigued by philosophy or the religions of Christianity, you will find this book fascinating, for it includes many true experiences from the authors life, his upbringing, his personal vision on the world in which we live, with compelling arguments for trusting in the divine. Lastly, David has been captivated all his life by the woods and fields of England, by fox, badger, deer and bird. By music and songs written. The legacy of all these things combined, shines through in his writings, with anecdote and parallels, contrasting the physical with the spiritual and vice versa. You will find it an open, honest and engaging read.
