Bella Figura: How to Live, Love, and Eat the Italian Way

We rated this book:


Bella Figura, or the art of appreciation and living well, is what Kamin Mohammadi learns all about when she relocates to Italy. After leaving her job as a magazine editor in London and suffering from a breakup with her boyfriend, she decides to move to Florence to make a new start in life.

The only plan she has is to write a book and take some time off for herself. It isn’t long, however, until she meets some new friends who help her discover the meaning of Bella Figura. She soon finds herself in a new relationship with Roberto, a local. Overwhelmed by the intensity of the affair, she is taken aback when things don’t turn out the way she expected. It may be that she has to kiss a few toads before finding her prince charming. Despite this, she learns to appreciate her time in Florence, and when the right man comes along, she will be ready to see where lover takes her.

Mohammadi’s charm, honesty, and courage to reveal personal ups and downs make this book a joy to read. The inclusion of Italian recipes at the end of each chapter is also a nice touch.
