About Me

In my last life, I was a journalist in NYC, but left the rat race to live in Italy for a year. I created this blog upon my return to combine my interests of writing and photography with my love of food and travel. My mother was from the region of Emilia-Romagna, my father’s family was from Calabria and my late husband’s family is Abruzzese. I am remarried now to an Italian-American whose family comes from Veneto and Campania. Is it any wonder then, that Italian art, music, food and the country’s beautiful landscape are among my passions? I hope you will try some of the recipes and post comments.

Buon Appetito, Linda
