In Viaggio: Italian Travel

  • Boats parked in the bay in front of the village of Sant'Angelo, Ischia.

    After a hot and busy week in Rome getting ready to drop Luca off to college at John Cabot University, we were ready for a seaside vacation.

  • An aerial view of the Chianti region of Tuscany, Italy.

    With a farmhouse in the countryside near Greve in Chianti as our base, we spent a few days exploring the Chianti region on our most recent trip to Tuscany.

Current Obsessions

  • Crostata di nutella with one slice cut out, resting on a pie slicer, and white napkin and a cup of espresso.

    Today’s recipe is an tribute to Nutella, that delicious, chocolate-hazelnut spread meant for kids but secretly loved by adults, too.

  • Olive oil cake with a slice pulled out on a cutting board sprinkled with powdered sugar and slices of blood oranges in the background.

    “Olive oil is good for you,” Stefano’s father, Andrea, used to tell us.

  • Two glasses of peaches in white wine with a Terredora Di Paolo cork.

    The peaches this summer have been spectacular!
