A behind-the-scenes look at the making of "La Figa: Visions of Food and Form" – a new book featuring a spectacular collection of sensual photography – models wearing nothing but the edible creations of James Beard award-winning chef Tiberio Simone. Using the human body as his canvas, and natural fresh ingredients as his paint, Simone’s elegant and tasteful nude images are the culmination of a five year collaboration with photographer Matt Freedman. http://www.LaFigaProject.com

Massimo Spigaroli is the guardian of an antique tradition, tightly bound to the land and its culinary history, rich with flavours and techniques passed down from one generation to another: the preparation of culatello, a prestigious salume made in the area surrounding Parma.
His family began producing pork cold cold cuts for Giuseppe Verdi around the mid-1800s. Still today, his products are requested from discerning clients around the world. Even Prince Charles sends his pigs all the way to the Antica Corte Pallavicina - the production headquarters of the Spigaroli family's company - so they are manufactured and treated according to this ancient Italian tradition.
Massimo opened the doors to this typical Italian rural estate, which also features a Michelin-starred restaurant. He shared childhoood memories and recipes, and even revealed the secrets (winter fog as an "ingredient"!) to his art.
