Welcome to Casa Maria Luigia, Massimo Bottura and Lara Gilmore’s idyllic guest house in the Italian countryside

Lara Gilmore and Massimo Bottura – the renowned chef behind three-Michelin-starred restaurant Osteria Francescana – designed Casa Maria Luigia to celebrate the hospitality and wonderful, earthy cuisine of Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region. Their one-of-a-kind guest house boasts not only exquisite food, but gorgeous interiors filled with contemporary art, unique design objects, and an impressive collection of Italian cars and motorcycles.

Slow Food, Fast Cars captures the extraordinary sensory and culinary experience of staying at Casa Maria Luigia. Created in close collaboration with Lara and Massimo, the book collects 85 authentic, accessible recipes for breakfasts, brunches, and all-day snacks, including frittatas and focaccias, salads, cakes and pastries, jams and preserves and more. At Casa Maria Luigia the past collides with the contemporary, and home cooks will discover seasonal variations for each recipe, as well as information about the dish’s origins and ingredients. Evocative photography and personal essays tell the fascinating stories behind every element of this magical guest house, from the incredible food to the interior design, cars, vinyl collection, garden, and country landscape.
