Food Adventures in Italy

Domani si parte!  We’re flying out tomorrow and will spend the next five weeks in Italy. This summer trip is particularly exciting for me as it is my first as a food blogger.  I’ll roam around Firenze for a few days in search of the best pappa al pomodoro and then head down to Abruzzo for innumerable culinary adventures, among them:  a class in seafood cookery on a trabocco in the Adriatic town of Vasto; a food walking tour in the medieval village of Guardiagrele; visits to farms and artisanal producers of typical prodotti abruzzesi;  a day-trip to the unspoiled Tremiti islands; and last, but not least, my very first cooking class in Italy alongside two special friends and collaborators.  So if you find yourself in or around Abruzzo or have friends or relatives visiting or living in the area, I invite you to join us on Saturday, July 20th for a day of Abruzzo Country Cooking.

I personally can’t imagine more inspiring subject matter on which to write so I hope you’ll join me as I bring La Majella to you.  A presto!  Michelle

P.S. – I’ll post photos on Facebook frequently so if you haven’t done so already, go ahead and “Like” my page.  Ciao!

    I’m back in the U.S. and just listening to what you’re about to embark on has me wishing I were back in Italy. I’m particularly interested in hearing about the Tremiti islands, a place I’ve long wanted to visit. Have a wonderful time – but I know you will.

      Thanks, Linda! I wish our trips had overlapped. I’m excited for the Tremiti as well as i just learned there is a direct ferry from Vasto. Have a wonderful summer and keep in touch!
