Happy Friday Dolce Vita readers! What have you been up to this week? Here at Via Umbria we have been spending a lot of time in the test kitchen, thinking of the many ways to use the impending zucchini explosion, making some of our first ever breakfast recipes, and mixing up some fantastic new drinks. If you have a recipe or suggestion that you would love to see on the blog, contact Elsa at firstname.lastname@example.org! But for now, the media digest for this week:
Italy is the most indebted country after Greece. While not great news, at least we aren’t Greece?
Many “Italian” foods that we have here in the United States are not what one would find in Italy at all. Of course we accept this fact, but the Huffington Post explains the origins of eight foods that are entirely constructions of the Italian – American lifestyle.
The New York Times suggests buying real estate in Umbria. We were cool before we were cool.
Here are six rules for eating like an Italian, from Food and Wine Magazine. We aspire to do many of the things on this list.
The New York Times chronicled a honeymoon (that seems too good to be true) from the top of Italy to the bottom. The text and photos read like a dream. If this makes you have wanderlust, we have the central part of Italy covered.
We hope your weekend is filled with no debt, Italian American food, real estate decisions, Italian eating, and the sentiment of a honeymoon. Ci Vediamo!
