About the Author

A James Beard Award-winning writer, Matt Goulding has never been better, writing in complete harmony with the book's innovative design and the more than 200 lush color photographs that introduce the chefs, shepherds, fisherman, farmers, nonne, and guardians who power this country's extraordinary culinary traditions. From the pasta temples of Rome to the multicultural markets of Sicily to the family-run, fish-driven trattorias of Lake Como, Pasta, Pane, Vino captures in a breathtaking tribute the diversity of Italian regional food culture.

Reviews

"Think of this as a travel guide that's supremely unhelpful in telling you where to eat... in the best possible way. After reading this book, you will want the following: a giant pan of paella, a big bowl of fabada, and as many cured meats as your stomach can take."--Bon Appetit
"Goulding honours the fascinating food of Spain with an anthropological approach. This combination of food and travel writing and photography couldn't have come from anywhere except the "Roads and Kingdoms" series, which continues to push out the definition of food publishing. Brilliant."--Financial Times Best Books of 2017
"Goulding's presentation of the myriad Spanish gastronomic delights from across the culturally diverse country is deliciously enticing and thoughtfully introspective."--Booklist (starred review)
"Part narrative, part how-to guide to eating in Spain (without this book you are doing it wrong), Goulding weaves stories and observations into an organic mosaic. Deeply satisfying for the armchair traveler, this can't-miss book should be required reading prior to visiting Spain."--Library Journal
"Grape, Olive, Pig employs an impressive literary toolkit in appreciating and savoring Spanish cuisine, with descriptions of meals, translations of uniquely Spanish culinary vocabulary, spirals through relevant history, depictions of current food productions, and narratives of Goulding's food-focused travels across Spain."--Smithsonian
"Goulding adeptly exposes the fabric of modern Spanish cuisine and whets the appetites for both food and travel, daring readers to explore unadvertised adventures of Spain. This book should be savored."--Los Angeles Review of Books
"Goulding's book leaves the reader with a pretty good idea of why Spain deserves to be taken very seriously as a gastronomic paradise."--Wall Street Journal
