Spring has sprung

Spring has sprung in my kitchen too, with this lovely “pain marguerite” that I bought at the annual French Market held in my hometown last weekend. The boulangerie is the most visited stand of the whole market. No wonder….

Fratelli d’Italia

17 Mar

Today Italy celebrates the 150th Anniversary of its Unification. Despite our Country is passing through difficult times, there’s still something – big or small – that makes us to be proud of being Italians.

It will rise in perfect light,
I have loved the stars too fondly
To be fearful of the night.
