With an Australian father, a Japanese mother, an adolescence spent in China and a University degree from the United States, Emiko Davies has spent most of her life living abroad, soaking up other cultures, languages and food.

For almost ten years now, Italy is the place she has called home.

In Emiko’s new book Acquacotta, she has compiled and adapted her Italian family’s best loved recipes from Capalbio, Monte Argentario, Giglio Island and inland to the hot springs of Saturnia and the ancient Pitigliano.

Acquacotta is all about the food that we love to eat and love to cook – comforting, low maintenance and easy to prepare.

Accompanied by stunning photography, Acquacotta sweeps readers away to share the unique tales and flavours of this often undiscovered coast.


Emiko’s recipe for Vongole e Polenta is a perfect example.



Thanks to Hardie Grant Books, we have 10 copies of this beautiful book to give away.

To a win a copy, simply email us at and tell us what you love to eat and what you love to cook. 

Include your full name, address and mobile phone number.
