How Beautiful Is The Life In Le Marche Countryside

How Beautiful Is The Life In Le Marche Countryside | Books, Food, Home, Wanderlust | Scoop.it

iWe feel very blessed to have the opportunity to be living in Italy, and in particular in such a beautiful region as The Marche.  This area of Italy is, on the whole, reliant on arable farming.  The lowlands and hills are a beautiful patchwork of fields which during the summer are bursting with crops waiting to be harvested – wheat, sunflowers, corn, legumes, etc.  [...]

Polenta con le vongole recipe by Italo-Americano: "To prepare for this journey, I’m doing some reading on the food of Le Marche. Recently I came across this super-simple dish. As usual, the quality of the seafood is what makes it. I even found a sagra (food festival) especially for this dish in southern Marche. Marche certainly has plenty of crazy-fresh seafood. I plan to wake up early and browse the catch on the docks of Senigallia as often as I can! "

Basil and Ricotta Frittata

Basil and Ricotta Frittata | Books, Food, Home, Wanderlust | Scoop.it

Just a single ingredient, ricotta, and herbs such as basil (or mint, or sage, according to the season) to create a full plate with flavor.
I love the frittata cooked in the oven and I mainly use this method of cooking but, if you prefer, you can use the same procedure also for the classic fried frittata.

Being Moved by Unfamiliar Sad Music Is Associated with High Empathy

Being Moved by Unfamiliar Sad Music Is Associated with High Empathy | Books, Food, Home, Wanderlust | Scoop.it
 

Experiences of Moving sadness were strongly associated with high trait empathy and emotional contagion, but not with other previously suggested traits such as absorption or nostalgia-proneness.

 

Relaxing sadness and Nervous sadness were not significantly predicted by any of the individual difference variables. The findings are interpreted within a theoretical framework of embodied emotions.

Cavolfiore in salsa di acciughe - Cauliflower in Anchovy Sauce

Cavolfiore in salsa di acciughe - Cauliflower in Anchovy Sauce | Books, Food, Home, Wanderlust | Scoop.it

Cauliflower is probably the most versatile of winter vegetables. It lends itself to practically every cooking technique you can think of: steaming, braising, boiling, frying, baking, roasting… And its mild flavor lends itself to pairing with all sorts of other foods and sauces. Here is one of my very favorite ways to make cauliflower—simply steamed and napped with a zesty anchovy sauce.
Ingredients - Serves 4 as a side dish or antipasto, 2 as a vegetarian main dish

1 head of cauliflower, trimmed and cut into flowerets

For the anchovy sauce:

250 ml (1 cup) olive oil2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled and slightly crushed1 peperoncino (dried red pepper) (or a pinch of red pepper flakes)1 small can of anchovy fillets (50g/2 oz)A handful of capers, rinsed and squeezed dryWhite wine (or water)A few sprigs of parsley, finely choppedDirections

Secret Italy: finding perfection in Le Marche

Secret Italy: finding perfection in Le Marche | Books, Food, Home, Wanderlust | Scoop.it
The title of the Italian province of Le Marche literally means “the borderlands”, a neutral region neighbouring more important places. This makes a lot of sense when you consider that Tuscany lies to the north and Umbria to the south. Next to these titans of the tourist trade so beloved of the inglese, and hemmed in by the mountains and the sea on either side, you might call Le Marche something of a poor relation, rarely visited.

This is How Literary Fiction Teaches Us to Be Human

This is How Literary Fiction Teaches Us to Be Human | Books, Food, Home, Wanderlust | Scoop.it
More recently, Trends in Cognitive Sciences reported more findings that link reading and empathy, employing a test called “Mind of the Eyes” in which subjects viewed photographs of strangers’ eyes, describing what they believed that person was thinking or feeling (readers of fiction scored significantly higher).

 

It turns out that the narrative aspect of fiction is key to this response. From the study: “participants who had read the fictional story Saffron Dreams by Shaila Abdullah … were found to have a reduced bias in the perception of Arab and Caucasian faces compared to control subjects who read a non-narrative passage.” More plot-driven genre fiction doesn’t seem to have the same effect.
