Sydney Italian Festival
This truck-shaped, lift-the-flap board book combines food with things that go for a novelty that has more than gears under the hood.
This good-looking little book presents how to enjoy the best of Italian food, understand what is offered, and order in an Italian restaurant or street market. Complementing the Blue Guides classic Italian cultural guidebook range as preparation for and accompaniment to any visit to Italy, it offers comprehensive coverage from pizza and gelato to rare regional delicacies and fine wine, along with separate sections on such subjects as seasonal food, Mediterranean fish, Italian wines and aperitifs, and star chefs. A phrasebook-divided into 'what it means' (Italian into English, including a glossary) and 'how to ask for' (English into Italian)-will make up most of the book. Supplemented with historical information on, for example, Roman banquets or Renaissance food, plus stylish black-and-white line drawings, this guide is suitable as a gift as well as a handy reference book for the traveler's on-site use. Assembled by the Blue Guides authors and editorial team, with many years of cumulative experience visiting and eating well throughout the length and breadth of Italy.

As a child Clare had been fascinated by her Italian classmates. Now at the age of 22, she was on her way to Italy. This was going to be the holiday of a lifetime. Little did she know what fate had in store for her. Her life was never to be the same after meeting the handsome Andrea. She was prepared to go to any lengths to be by his side. Nothing or nobody was going to stand in her way, or at least she thought, until she met his dominating Mamma.
Food consumption is vital to human survival. Nevertheless, the exact determi nants of food perception, liking and food choice are still not fully understood. Food, People and Society tries to fill some of the gaps in our knowledge by stud ying these processes from multiple perspectives, each with their own emphasis. Some approaches focus mainly on the characteristics of food products eaten, some focus on the person who eats a particular food, whereas other approaches emphasize the psychological, economic or social context in which food con sumption takes place. By bringing together these different approaches in one book, we open the opportunity to integrate different perspectives and to facili tate comprehension of the complex processes that drive food choice behaviour. Food, People and Society is written for a wide audience, including students and academics interested in food perception and consumption, policy makers, health educators and nutritionists, food manufacturers and food marketers."
