….. the universe had set me up for a date with Italy!
Somehow, everything I did, cooked, ate or read was Italian….. even the few events I went to, where all to do with Italy. A mere coincidence, I tell you! But a very pleasant one.
However, it is no coincidence that Italian cuisine is the most famous and best loved cuisine on earth. I mean who doesn’t like Pizza, Pasta, Frittata, Pesto, Mozzarella, Tiramisu, Torta di Crema, Balsamico, Amaretti, limoncello, grappa….? Just articulating the names in Italian Fashion puts you straight in the mood for La Dolce Vita!
