Susan Gravely Italy on a Plate

About the author:

Susan Gravely is the founder and CEO of VIETRI, a lifestyle brand offering handcrafted Italian tabletop and home and garden accessories. She started VIETRI alongside her sister and mother after they took a trip to Italy in 1983. They fell in love with the hand-painted dinnerware they found on the Amalfi Coast and decided to start a wholesale business. Since that trip forty years ago, VIETRI has become the largest American importer of Italian ceramics.

About the book:

In her debut cookbook, VIETRI founder and creative director Susan Gravely celebrates forty years of her Italian lifestyle brand. Italy on a Plate is an exploration into what makes Italy so magical: its staggering beauty, unparalleled style, artistic legacy, and incredible food. The close friends Gravely has made during her years of Italian travels have graciously shared their homes and their favorite family recipes, and this book gives a culinary tour of Italy’s flavors.
