In Frank Stitt’s Bottega Favorita: A Southern Chef’s Love Affair with Italian Food…. the purity and simplicity of Mediterranean flavors are celebrated with Southern spirit on every page. Stitt celebrates and supports locally produced slow-food artisans and growers like Wright Dairy–supplying natural unhomogenized milk to Bottega Restaurant and Caf233;; Jones Valley Urban Farms in the middle of downtown Birmingham, McEwen & Sons fresh eggs; Jefferson County Farmers’ Market; and Henry Fudge’s pork. http://bottegarestaurant.com/;
 
Frank Stitt understands the subtle role that wine plays in a meal. He adores wine himself as a lifetime student and consumer. Recommended Italian whites include the little known Arneis, Erbalace from near the Swiss and French borders, Tocais, Pinot Biancos, Sauvignons and Pinot Grigios from Friuli, Alto Adige and the Vento..
