La spaghettoteca

La spaghettoteca - Italy from the Inside

Remember this name, spaghettoteca, in case you are in Italy, you are hungry and you want to get a load of carbs. In a spaghettoteca there’s not only spaghetti, but all sort of pasta. Lots of shapes, lots of sauces, lots of flavors.

 

Chestnuts have arrived!

There’s no doubt, one of my Fall favorite is definitely chestnuts, which find the perfect climate in Italy where they grow naturally.  Documented since the Roman times, for centuries they have been a dominant portion of the peasants’ standard diet. Did you know that they come in two versions? The smaller one is called castagne, while the bigger one is called marroni.
