Does ancient wisdom about eating well apply to modern life?
That zuppetta is right up my alley; I made something very similar when I was staying in Penne last fall, using those whimsical "trombetta" zucchini and creamy yellow potatoes packed with flavor. Your point about not romanticizing a traditional lifestyle is a good one; it's not like these people had/have many choices or an easy time of it. But they somehow still appreciate the gifts that nature has given them. Gorgeous photos, can't wait for May. Thanks for the shout out!
How I wish I could take this tour!! You also just sent home this idea for me that sometimes we don’t get to experience the best food - sometimes that food really is in someone’s kitchen just for them.
