    A Visitor To Italy

    I lived in Italy a couple of times, mostly in the South and learned to cook a bit from friends there. I love pasta in tomato sauce, lasagne, ricotta ravioli and lots of Italian dishes. I want to improve my knowledge and be able to cook more things.

    It's So Much Fun!

    I love cooking Italian food so much, that my dad went out and bought me The Silver Spoon, which is the Bible of Italian cooking. It has all the food names, and all the little hints on how to do certain stuff to get an effect, or a garnish. Italian food is good if your having a...
