Let's just say that this has been a crazy week.
I have had no time for filming and posting, but visited 3 hospitals in 3 days (Spoiler alert, ALL WELL)
Hospital n. 1: San Donato in Arezzo
I don't have enough words to thank these women, not only for the professionalism tha...

What's poorer than a dish made with a left over dish?
Reusage of ingredients and whole dishes has been a prerogative of poor people's cuisine.
Think meatballs, meatloaf, just a way to use left over meat (you wouldn't throw away!) Think Ribollita , just a way to re use th...

It's May the 4th.
What a better way to start this new course of our lives?
We need strenght to re-start, we need hope, we need the force.
Help us, princess Leia, you are our only hope.
We are reopening progressively all of our businesses.
The only ones still on hold are bar...

I was walking, the other day.
I noticed the absence of noises, not sounds, noises. Very few cars and no machineries.
The paws of my dogs into the pools of water, their breath while chasing some bird or another.
Seagulls, Egrets, Sterling Crows and Swallows.

I love and hate making crostata.
I love it because it remembers me of my mom Anna and my auntie Giulia.
I love it because I used to argue with my mom about the fact that she wouldn't add yeast to the dough, and now I don't either.
I love it because it smell of the earlies...

One of my greatest memories is my mom asking me why couldn't I just spare all the effort and buy the tortellini like everyone else, but then g...

What weird times, I have never stayed at home this long, went out to town last time one week ago, I had to go to the bank.
No one in the street aside me.
Mario goes, buys the necessities of the day (bread, meat if needed) at the stores in town, and comes back home.

I know , I know, I am late to the game.
On monday the whole world celebrated Carbonara Day.
Why? Who decides? And why not a Ragù day, or a Frittata con le zucchine day?
Don't get me wrong, I love Carbonara, but why is it celebrated on April6th! Who decided, is ther...

Matteo is staying with my dad (85yo), he keeps him company and I couldn't be any prouder, they are enjoying their time togheter. Dad is a...

I woke up this morning thinking that this could possibly be the most complex and well organized April Fool joke, but no.
It is not a joke.
It's the 4th week of lockdown in Italy. I go out only for necessary things (like food and bank) and then, nothing.
Now, we live in t...
