    Something About Italy - Girl in Florence
    Pic credit - Girl in Florence 1) How did you end up in Italy ? I first came to Italy as a study abroad student in 2005, at the time I was living in Los Angeles for university but I am originally from San Antonio, Texas. My program lasted a full calendar year which really helped to give me time to get to know Florence a little better than most study abroad programs that only last for a semester. After finishing my degree in Los Angeles, I returned to Italy in the Fall of 2007 and haven’t

    Something About Italy - An American In Rome
    Natalie Kennedy Picture credit - An American in Rome 1) How did you end up in Italy ? I moved to Rome for graduate school. I did my master’s degree in economics (with a focus on international policy) at an Italian university. That led to an internship and eventually a job. Though, a few weeks after I arrived, I also met the man I would later marry – so there were many reasons to stay. 2) How much of the Italian culture were you familiar with before you moved there? Oh god. I wish I could say

    Natale in Italia (Christmas in Italy)
    Italian Christmas Traditions This week I have been asking my students if they are familiar with some of Italy’s Christmas traditions. Surprisingly the majority said they aren't, so for our last week of Italian language classes we will be reading about Italian Christmas traditions while we enjoy a sip of caffe` or limoncello with a little bit of traditional Italian Christmas cake ‘il Pandoro.’ Excuse the lack of photo's in this blog...it’s a little hard to find any when the last Christmas you

    Ciambella allo yoghurt, datteri e noci
    Ciambella allo yoghurt, datteri e noci I often wake early in the morning and love to bake when it's quiet and the kids are still asleep. I usually always make the same Ciambella al Limone, which the family love for 'la colazione' (breakfast), unless there is something in the fridge like ricotta, cream or yoghurt that may be close to it's use by date. If so, then I'll usually use 'un po` di fantasia' (a little imagination) and add something different to the ciambella. I hate waste, and this is

    Crostata con la Crema e le Fragole
    Here are the ingredients and very rough method of how I put together a couple of crostata's this morning because I had dozens of eggs from our wonderful chooks to use and my nonna handed me some sweet red ripe strawberries yesterday she got from a farm she went to with her friends on the community bus. (Her social life at 94 years of age is more full on than mine!) First of all : make some custard! and let it cool.  Pasta Frolla Ingredients: 250gr butter approx 250 grams (half packet of) La

    Are You Italian with Claudia Bertorello
    1. Tell me a little bit about yourself, and where in Italy were your parents born ?  I was born in Perth but my parents are both Italian born.   Papa` is from a small town called Castagnole Lanze in the Langhe of Piedmonte - near Asti. And Mamma is from the Slovenian border.  The town where she was born was Italian, but over the years has changed it’s border many times.  When my grandparents were alive, it was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. My background is in media and TV journalism.

    Are you Italian? with Paola Bacchia
    Pictured Paola's parents just arrived in Australia Tell me a bit about yourself and where in Italy your parents were born? When asked what I do, my first response is that I am a cookbook author, a photographer and a home cook who runs an Italian cooking school at home. But there are many who know me as a public health dentist and manager, as over the years I ran a number of clinics.  The urge to write, cook and take photos came to me quite late in life; some 10 years ago. My parents came

    Are you Italian? with John Dicandia
    1. Tell me a little bit about yourself, and where in Italy were your parents born ? I was born in Melbourne and grew up in the northern working class suburb of Fawkner where there were predominately Southern European migrants. I lived there with my older sister and my parents. My mother was born in Tunisia as did her 10 siblings and they migrated to Trieste just before the outbreak of WW11. My father was born in Barletta, Apulia and moved to Trieste just after the war. My parents met in 1952
