NGT Food summer 2021 issue

LONDON (3 June): National Geographic Traveller Food’s new issue brings the flavours of Italy to you this summer, with seven mouth-watering snapshots of Italian cuisine from seven true afficionados. The magazine’s cover story sees some of the most respected chefs and food writers single out the dishes, ingredients and regions that keep their passion for Italy alive, from Tuscan olive oil and Amalfi lemons to freshly cooked anchovies and Vesuvian tomatoes.

In the Summer edition of this special-issue series, out now, Giorgio Locatelli shares his love for the Sicilian speciality pasta con le sarde; Angela Hartnett picks out six unmissable dishes from Emilia-Romagna; Rachel Roddy meets a pecorino cheese producer in Lazio; and Francesco Mazzei talks the flavours of Puglia.

Glen Mutel, editor of National Geographic Traveller Food, said: “Whatever your relationship to Italian food — whether you’re a dabbler, an enthusiast or an authority — there’s always more to learn. Its story is different every time it’s told, and no matter how comfortingly familiar it feels to us here in the UK, there are just too many wondrous ingredients, local specialities and variations on tradition for it to ever feel stale.

“Which is why, this summer, we’re serving up a grand Italian feast, taking in seven of the country’s most exciting culinary regions — and giving our readers a chance to fall for this extraordinary cuisine all over again.”

Also in this issue, we explore the five miles of wine tunnels and bodegas beneath the Spanish town of Aranda de Duero, experience the joys of sake in Japan and meet the shepherds making smoked cheese in the mountains of southern Poland. There’s all this, plus the culinary highlights of Mexico City, Florida Keys and the Ghanaian capital, Accra.

In addition, expect the usual mix of thought-provoking features and easy-to-follow recipes from world-renowned contributors.
