The creation of a fine liqueur mirrors the art of a fine painting. The elements of both are elements from nature, both observed and collected, then composed by passion, elegantly into a new and different body, to be preserved, shared and celebrated, touching the senses.
Written in the style of Pellegrino Artusi, Italian Liqueurs not only artfully explores how traditions developed in a story-like manner, but offers practical knowledge to create your own liqueurs and stresses the use of freshly picked, biologically diverse fruits, nuts, berries, citrus, herbs and spices, emphasizing the importance of taste and understanding what components go well together.
A book for those who live to discover and create, Italian Liqueurs
offers a delightful experience to those who want to put their soul into
their entertaining. It is a book for people who want to understand the
medicinal and cultural paths as liqueur making journeyed through time,
and for those who want to bring the spirit of that history and artful
tradition to their friends and family by creating their own unique
liqueurs at home.
