Four years ago today I sat down at my computer and took a deep breath and started this blog. I love to write, love to cook and love all things Italian and so it seemed like the right thing to do. I’m happiest when I’m in the kitchen and when I’m in Italy and so connecting with others with the same interests through this blog has been a great addition to my life. There are days when I’m uninspired, both in the kitchen and with the written word and on those days, I do not post anything here. It just seems frivolous for me to write just anything for the sake of blogging.
In honor of my anniversary and as a big grazie to you, my readers, I’m doing another give-away. This book In Late Winter We Ate Pears, is part cookbook and part memoir written by a couple who spent a year in Italy, eating, cooking and becoming inspired by the food there. Upon their return home they opened a bakery which turned into an osteria in Vermont called Pane e Salute (which means bread and health). The name came from a hundred year old bakery they visited during their stay in Tuscany. I’m happy to say that I too have been there various times as it’s in Arezzo’s centro. I love this book as it exemplifies the simplicity of the food of Italy.
Leave me a comment between today and October 15th and you’ll be entered to win this heartwarming book.
