Will Damron narrates James Beard Award-winning food journalist Matt Goulding’s audiobook with energy, poise, and precision. The decision to emulate rather than imitate the myriad Italian accents adds to the enjoyment of this audiobook. All the Italians speak with the same intonation. This choice lets the author’s American voice ring true and focuses on the essence of the work: an examination of Italian cuisine in less celebrated locales. Sardinia, Sicily, and Puglia take star turns. Goulding is a fine food writer. He shares real insights into the pillars of contemporary Italian food—reverence for the nonne (grandmothers) and the preparation of great dishes from simple ingredients. Goulding also introduces the listener to the Slow Food movement, which originated in Italy, and profiles artisanal cheese makers, inventive pizzaioli makers, and master pasta makers. Here is an audiobook to be savored. A.D.M. 2019 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
