Live, love and eat the Italian way with Kamin Mohammadi’s "Bella Figura"

By:

A memoir on the fine Italian art of a life well lived.

Feeling lost, lonely, run-down and depressed in her life as an editor at a glossy London magazine, Kamin Mohammadi takes a leap of faith and moves to Florence for a year. With its colourful cast of characters (for instance, a plumber who teaches the author how to make a perfect pasta and a barista who becomes her love adviser), seasonal recipes straight from her Florentine friends and life lessons (such as the power of nonchalance, how to take a lover and how to never need the gym again), Bella Figura is a study in the fine Italian art of a life well lived. 

Bella Figura: How to Live, Love, and Eat the Italian Way (Appetite by Random House) by Kamin Mohammadi, $30.
