“…a soulful journey through an amazing writer’s mind” – another of our lovely readers


Simposio is an independently published Italian cookbook collection made in Italy for Italophiles – those who want to go deeper, understand, and absorb Italy’s endless heritage. 

Each monograph in the collection explores a city, a region, or a season in Italy. 

New Simposio cookbooks are published twice a year. To date, a collection of twenty-one cookbooks is waiting for you. 

You can subscribe and get a Simposio every one or two months and begin your discovery of Italy, one little piece at a time, slowly traveling from wherever you are.

You will connect with this beautiful country in the most respectful, cultured, and complete way: through beautiful pictures, cultural investigation, and mindful cooking.

Print subscriptions are available in the US, UK, Australia (only paperback), Germany, Spain, France, and Italy.

Subscriptions start at 28 USD monthly or every two months – you decide!

a breath of fresh air

"...a breath of fresh air, beauty and ideas. Cheers to the team"

a letter, tucked in your drawer from the past

"Claudia has a way of describing the daily rituals of life in Puglia in the words of a friend. As though written in a letter, tucked in your drawer from the past, her musings on the variations of water one can order in a restaurant, pumos, and falling ill from “humidity” left me in Salento peeling almonds while sipping a caffe leccese on the sand. A side of Italy you won’t get anywhere else."

the most pleasant suprprise of the year

"...this was the most pleasant suprprise of the year. ... drop dead beautiful. Photographs, creative, clever words. I absolutely love it and cannot wait to experience the recipes. ...This is a soulful journey through an amazing writer’s mind. Thank you for developing such a wonderful product."

This is not something you buy and put away

"My wife and I tried several recipes from this magazine/cookbook. Everything we made was more than delicious! The recipes are easy to follow and the measurements seem true. We enjoyed the relaxed lighthearted attitude of the author as well as the way she shares Italian culture. This is not something you buy and put away, this is the one that stays on the kitchen counter... I have cooked for many years in many different countries and have never enjoyed a cookbook more! This book is like a vacation to Italy! The attention to detail and inside look at Italian regional culture is fantastic! Grazie Claudia!"

several hours of enjoyment

"...very well done. Beautiful and large pictures; lots of information about the region. And recipes that look really tasty. Many many pages, for several hours of enjoyment."
