Growing up Italian: A Pasta Story

Growing up Italian: A Pasta Story | ITALIA PER SEMPRE | Scoop.it
“Life is a combination of pasta and magic” Fellini once said. So, it goes for me. The Pasta gene is profoundly embedded in my soul. I learned this art before I learned how to write, watching and sharing the kitchen with women who enjoyed both the process, and the art itself. I have some childhood …

<<Hello all. I live in between two worlds (USA and Italy) but I'm really grounded. I believe it's a luxury to be able to pick and choose the best of both. Senigallia is not the town where I was born, but it is a place I learned to deeply love while spending part of the summers growing up.>>

Going solo in Rome

Going solo in Rome | ITALIA PER SEMPRE | Scoop.it
You are in one of the most romantic cities in the world but your other half isn’t!

Is this a problem? “Not at all!” would be my answer.

While of course I would have loved Neill to have been there to share with me all the wonderful things I did in Rome, being on my own did have some advantages.

For starters, travelling on your own gives you the flexibility to do exactly what you want, when you want and at the pace you want. The result is you get a lot more done and I was there to work after all although, I’ll admit, researching Rome’s food and wine didn’t really feel like work!

Secondly, I was far too busy to be lonely and I met lots of really interesting people so I had plenty of opportunities to chatter away to my heart’s content.

Did I feel safe in Rome?

Yes....

A history lesson @ Sostanza [il Troia] | The Curious Eater

A history lesson @ Sostanza [il Troia] | The Curious Eater | ITALIA PER SEMPRE | Scoop.it

A time machine. Florence can feel like that at times. But sometimes, it’s a welcome feeling. A history lesson inside every doorway. Where time stands still and things are the way they were meant to be.

  

Massimiliano, one of the co-owners, welcomes me. A history lesson follows.  Sostanza’s origin goes back to 1869; a starring role for Guido ‘Il Troiaio’ [‘a dirty man’], his unfortunate death in a post WWII bomb attack [while on his bike to get groceries]; a name change from Troia to Sostanza in 1977 [note that today most Florentines still only know Troia].  On the walls, the history is for us to see, from the family to the legendary to the regulars.
