All Things Italian

My first trip to Europe many years ago was to Northern Italy and I've been in love with the country ever since - the fashion, the food, the views, the landscape - I must have been Italian in an earlier life.  I was reminded how much I love the place when I was in New York for the US Open and went to Eataly, again.  And I am always reminded how much I adore Italian fashion when I see anything made by Armani.  My first Armani purchase was made way back when and I still have that suit and it still fits!  I also bought Valentino that trip and I still own that skirt (and it still fits). What's not to love about the simplicity and style of this sweater?



The Italians, unlike Americans, live simplistically.  They value tradition, style and less is definitely more.  They don't overindulge like we do in America and the Italian women definitely take care of themselves (like the French).  And the wine!  The Grappa!

When I made my first visit, I stayed for two weeks in Bassano del Grappa, not far from Venice.  Every morning we'd go down to the village and buy fresh pasta and fresh cannoli.

I recently bought two books and one of my fall resolutions is to cook and eat Italian - good Italian.



You can shop Italian on-line.  It's not perfect but at least those ingredients that you want that you can't buy at Wal-Mart or Food Lion are available somewhere.  Shop here.
