Cooking fresh foods purchased daily is a way of life for Italians. This ‘life style’ is what I enjoy when ‘living’ in Italy for my 6 or 8 weeks each year. When I am fortunate to have an apartment for part of each trip, I visit the local markets and try to understand what the Italians cook for their families.
|Fresh foods have a color that is vibrant|
|Sometimes the fresh veggies come to you!|
|Even the super mercato has FRESH|
I am thinking of Lesley’s words and meaning as i eat Italian orzo in canned soup….hmmm not there yet.
As a future expat, will Italians even accept an outsider?
I dont think Italian’s think Italian Americans are REAL Italians.
What do you think?
