A Castle in Tuscany
tells the story of the extraordinary Janet Ross. To lovers of classic food books, Janet's name is recognisable, as the eminent Elizabeth David cited her as a source and her work changed the way the English thought about vegetables. Few people though know much about the life she lived.
In this fascinating biography, author Sarah Benjamin details Janet's passion for nature and food and uncovers a life full of talent, generosity, ideas, family secrets and intrigue.
