ninety-three-year-old woman is kneading her daily bread, while her
ninety-six-year-old neighbor pedals by on his bicycle ... In this
sun-drenched village in the Aurunci Mountains, the residents enjoy
astonishing longevity, such that scientists from the World Health
Organization have dubbed it the "village of eternity." Not only are the
people of Campodimele living longer-the male life expectancy is 26
percent higher than the U.S. average-but they also have substantially
lower blood pressure than their countrymen, and the cholesterol levels
of newborn babies.
Tracey Lawson chronicles twelve months of life in Campodimele,
highlighting the villagers' cooking and eating habits, which many
believe are key to their long, healthy lives. Their meals are simple and
wholesome, dependent on high-quality meats and cheeses, local olives,
homemade pastas, and hearty legumes. Lawson provides a year's worth of
recipes for cooks at home, accompanied by sumptuous illustrations and
peppered with sensible health advice and transporting tales of a place
unlike any other.
