This is the true story of the Umbrian Thursday night supper club, a group of four rural women who gather in a derelict stone house in the hills above Italy's Orvieto to cook, eat, drink and talk.
During the gathering, the preparation, the cooking and the eating, they recount the memories and experiences of their gastronomic lives and, as much, of their more personal histories. For a period of four years, it was Marlena de Blasi's task, her pleasure, to cook for the Supper Club - to choose the elements for supper, to plan the menu and, with the help of one or another of the women in the club, to prepare the meal. What she learnt, what they cooked and ate and drank and how they talked is the fundamental stuff of this book.
The Umbrian Supper Club includes a dozen recipes drawn from the Supper Club.
