Our trip to Italy is inspired by the Stanley Tucci series, Searching for Italy, in which Stanley (I think he would want me to call him that) visits the twenty regions of Italy in search for the best foods.
We plan to visit two regions during our three-week trip to Italy, Piedmont and Puglia...
Our first stop is Piedmont where we stay in a hundred-year-old house in the country, surrounded by gardens filled with zucchini, tomatoes, basil, apples, and grapes. No shortage of birds or pollinators here. During our time in Piedmont, we will hear the Common Chaffinch, Great Tit, Little Owl, Eurasian Collared-Dove, Common Wood Pigeon, Common House-Martin, Peregrine Falcon, Eurasian Jackdaw, Eurasian Blackcap, Rock Pigeon, Song Thrush, and the Eurasian Magpie---it's a concert every morning.
Weekend Cooking was created by Beth Fish Reads and is now hosted by Marg at The Intrepid Reader (and Baker). It is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page. For more information, see the welcome post.
