To eat is one of the basic needs of humans. So, it is supposed to be a satisfaction to fulfill your needs. If we add specialty tastes to it …it becomes a real pleasure.
Each time I say cheers with a glass of wine and good things to eat at the table, I use to say: “Cose buone della vita!”, that means good things from life; as I recognize I am living a real pleasure and I feel I am really enjoying one of the good things life offers us.
Living in Italy certainly made the difference, as it is a country where food is really important. In all meanings, from its production to its importance to Italian people. Italians like to cook and love to eat. To have lunch or dinner is the most common way to meet friends and family.
This blog wants to share my experience regarding food, here in Italy ans wherever I happen to travel to (I love to travel ). You are very welcome to comment and share your ideas here.
I am far from being a chef, but I enjoy cooking. So consider the recipes I am sharing here with you are all doable by anyone. My aims in kitchen are:
1) cook for pleasure – so it’s difficult I stay for more than 1 hour, 1 1/2 hours. I’d begin to feel tired and the pleasure would decrease ;
2) cook tasty things with little fat/sugar. Of course I am not dieting everyday, but I decided to ingest the calories that are worth it! So I use only the necessary fat and/or sugar, and use to prefer the healthier recipes;
3) have a good looking result. One of the first quotes I heard here in Italy was “anche l’occhio vuole la sua parte”, that means that the eyes want their part in the sense that something has to be also pleasant for the sight.
So, you’re welcome! Enjoy!
