"Never Trust a Thin Cook and Other Lessons from Italy's Culinary Capital," by Eric Dregni
2009, University of Minnesota Press

at the Italian Cultural Institute

The food-obsessed chronicle of an American's three years in Italy.


I simply want to live in the place with the best food in the world. This dream led Eric Dregni from Minnesota to Italy, first to Milan and eventually to a small, fog-covered town to the north: Modena, the birthplace of balsamic vinegar, Ferrari, and Luciano Pavarotti. Never Trust a Thin Cook is a classic American abroad tale, brimming with adventures both expected and unexpected, awkward social moments, and most important, very good food.

"Never Trust a Thin Cook is a funny little intimate travel tale, it's like getting a series of letters from a good friend off on a great adventure."
—Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl, Minnesota Monthly
