I posted before on the subject of Italian food…and had more ‘hits’ than the artwork ever gets!  But it is one of the joys of a trip over to the Lunigiana.  I quoted too, from Marcella Hazan’s book and that went down well so…


“When Aristotle said that a work of art should imitate the motions of the mind and not an external arrangement of facts, he was anticipating a definition of the art of the Italian home cook.  In Italy the source of the very best Italian food is the home kitchen.”

Marcella Hazan, The Classic Italian Cookbook, Macmillan London, 1980
