Black Roosters and Wild Boars

Børresen, Bibbi and Klaus Hagerup: Svarte haner og ville griser. En mat- og vinreise i Chianti

In the summer of 2004, Klaus Hagerup and Bibbi Børresen spent a journey focusing on food and wine in Chianti, an important wine district in Toscana. Fredrik Skavlan and Tom Karlsen joined the couple, drawing and photographing.

The result of their journey is a lavishly illustrated book in which Klaus Hagerup, with his remarkable sense of humour, describes all the adversities on their way – from one wine producer to another, from one trattoria to another. In more soberly factual text parts Bibbi Børresen provides details on wine and food in the area of Chianti Classico.

A combination of humour, facts, texts and drawings – not to mention marvellous photos – give a vivid and entertaining introduction to an enormously rich and varied wine and food culture.
