Call Me By Your Name, a coming-of-age drama set in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy, chronicles the summer romance between teenage Elio (Timothee Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer), an American grad student working for his father. The gorgeous setting calls for equally gorgeous food celebrating summer Northern Italian produce: crisp Chicken Milanese topped with arugula salad, and another simple salad of shaved summer squash. And no spoiler, but we couldn’t resist a peach dessert.
