You have written extensively on various facets of Italian food and artisanal production. What haven't you yet covered that is high on your list?

I’m still in recovery from my book about salumi! Which is to say that a lot of other work was on hold while I finished it. Some things wouldn’t wait, such as the apples, quince, and plums (a local variety that some people call ‘coscia di monaca’, or nun’s thighs), and mowing down the olive fields (overgrown because we had tooooo much rain in the spring). Now I am up to my shoulders in figs and before long we will have the olive harvest…

But, back to the question….I do have a few ideas fermenting, perhaps something about canning/preserving from my Tuscan garden. Or something about the regional cheeses
