Panini Girl

My obsessions-Italy and Cooking

April 17, 2012


On The Move

The time has come, well almost. By the end of the week I will be posting from Lucca and hopefully you will be following my time there. I’ll have two weeks in this charming town, the first just in time for the annual celebration Santa Zita, the patron saint of the the city. Two of the city’s piazzas will be filled with flower displays in honor of Santa Zita. Legend has it that while working in the home of a nobleman back in the 1200s, she frequently took some bread to feed the poor. One day she was stopped and asked what she was carrying and when she opened her apron, flowers fell out.

My second week there I will be hosting Spring In Tuscany-Cook With Panini Girl In Lucca for seven days. It will be a week of exploring, shopping, eating, laughing and traveling around Lucca and its countryside. In addition to Lucca, there will be time in Pistoia, Florence and the gorgeous mountains of the Garfagnana.

From Lucca I’m off to Bologna. What can I say, except “bring on the tortellini”! This university town located in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy is known for having amazing food. Considering that all of Italy has food to die for, I am looking forward to eating my way through the city.

Next time maybe you’ll come along with me!
