In this blog, I describe the difference between what is known as “Italian Food” and the real food of continental Italy. In doing so, I try to be as objective as I can in battling misconceptions, with the final goal of sharing knowledge and promoting discussion.

If you are interested in Italian food and in its philosophy, then this website is for you – I genuinely hope you’ll enjoy it!

The site is divided into three main sections:

  • Articles – a collection of food notes on various topics ranging from Italian products to Italian culture and traditions;
  • Recipes – some of my favorite Italian dishes to cook, from traditional staples to modern creations;
  • A podcast – in which I discuss with various food personalities about Italian food in the world.

To read more about me and my motivations, please see the About page.
