My friend Sarah Murdoch has been nagging me for a very long time to start this blog and has set it up so I have no reason not to.
I have lived in Italy for a long time and am looking forward to sharing stories and recipes here.
Today I am celebrating the simple things in life. The simple things here are lunch with Sarah and her son Nico who are visiting from the states. Fresh tomatoes and basil from our garden and piadine stuffed with bresaola, stracchino cheese, arugula and more tomatoes. Healthy, happy children and doing a whole lot of nothing as we enjoy one of the last days of our summer vacation.
I will be celebrating 20 years in Piemonte, Italy next year. I have had some interesting adventures, enjoy lots of good food and wine and never imagined that laundry would take up so much of my time time. Come with me and find out what Italian life is really like!
