Hello, and welcome to another episode of the podcast. Today on the podcast, I’m excited to have an interview with Susan Gravely. In her debut cookbook, Italy on a Plate, Susan Gravely celebrates 40 years as Founder and Creative Director of VIETRI, a lifestyle brand offering handcrafted Italian tabletop and home and garden accessories. With a foreword by Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun, Italy on a Plate, is an exploration of what makes Italy so magical: its staggering beauty, unparalleled style, artistic legacy, and incredible food. The close friends Gravely have made during her years of Italian travels have graciously shared their homes and their favorite family recipes, and this book gives a culinary tour of Italy's flavors with recipes you will enjoy with loved ones for years to come. Today on the podcast, Susan and I talk about how Vietri began, Susan’s cookbook writing journey, and the role Frances Mayes played in the development of Italy on a Plate, as well as some recipes from the book, including Fish in Crazy Water, Scalloped Oysters, Spinach and Artichokes.
