When I grew up in Torino, Italy I would dream of other places, better places. My house was located right in front of the first FIAT factory, the Lingotto factory where Mr. Agnelli, Giovanni’s grandfather, built the very first automobile plant in Italy. The view from my balcony was not very appealing and as a [...]

The wiser I get the more I want to live in a farm, close to the animals, away from the city but close enough to Italian nonne (grandma’s) that can teach me the true Italian good cooking. By good, I don’t mean elaborate, I just mean, tasty, fresh. I think my state of thinking is [...]

This is why I like to go visit [...]

Your cup of coffee is perfect, but you have places back home that make an awful cup of coffee (not Pappalecco of course!)!
You are perfect, back home you need a psychologist to even be [...]

Ah Little Italy, one of my favorite places to frequent. And Pappalecco is the place my fiends and I have come to cherish.

Italians find a lot of happiness around the table. I personally think about dinner time, all day long. What am I going to cook tonight? I believe that eating something that has inspired you all day, brings your mood up, makes you happy.
