on vineyards on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, Benevento, and Ischia.

Recipes that he has culled in Napoli, on the islands, and all along the coast from friends, relatives, and obliging cooks on Ischia (Braised Rabbit), in Positano (Spaghetti Vongole), Cetara, Salerno, Sorrento, and every nook and cranny on the Amalfi Coast and further afield in the towns of Benevento, Avellino, and Tramonti.
Yes, Daniel has comprised quite a wonderful book, filled with his 35 years of knowledge of this one of Italy's most beloved locals. You'll not find a better collection of Amalfi Coast and
Neapolitan Recipes, Daniel's unique stories, nor his repertoire of facts and tidbits acquired over all these years. Positano The Amalfi Coast Cookbook and Travel Guide, "all we can say is that if you're planning a trip to Positano, Capri, Naples, or Amalfi, this book is an absolute must. And even if you're not, the book is a great read for those into Armchair Travel.
Want a real Amalfi Coast eating experience in the kind of cute little family run
restaurant? Go to Cetara, one of the last authentic fishing villages left on the Amalfi Coast
where the local fishermen catch fresh fish everyday, and the local specialties are Alici (anchovies)
and Tuna. Look for the cute little trattoria "Cetara Punto e Pasta" and if you're lucky, you'll get a table. Then sit in for what will be one of your best meals and experiences of your entire Amalfi Coast trip.
As I said they specialize in Alici here, so I suggest you get a couple dishes or more made with Alici, they are absplutely wonderful. Maybe start out with the Crostini that are topped with a bit of fresh Ricotta and topped with a fresh filet of Alici, "Yum." My favorite are the Alici Fritti. The Alici are lightly battered and perfectly fried. They are amazing.
They have all sorts of wonderful fish and as the name says, pasta dishes as well. Try some Octopus (Polpo), and the Spaghetti Frutta di Mare with mixed seafood of Mussels, Shrimps, and Clams is outstanding. They are quite well known for their homemade Ravioli stuffed with ricotta and anchovies, in a light tomato sauce.
