How hot was it? Oh, random fires in the middle of the road hot! See image below. Ironically, the one year I am craving an early fall, it feels like mid-summer in Boston today! There's something so bittersweet about September for me and perhaps you can relate. It feels like New Years in a sense.
The chance to start anew, if you will, and make new goals, new plans and take new steps in the direction of your dreams. I think it's the school year schedule that makes it feel so fresh. That's the sweetness part. The "bitter" comes in the realization that Boston winters are brutal, and they're practically around the corner and that my Calabrian vacation is over, so of course, that's sadness in itself.

And to add to that, our Culinary Adventures feel so far away! Alas, yes, fall can be bittersweet to say the least! So it was THIS hot! That said, I wouldn't change my summers in Calabria for anything. I have been going back almost yearly since our move here some 30 years ago and it's as much home as Boston is. So despite the heat, it's a place I will always return to with fondness and eagerness. This view!
The above view is of the sunrise from our home in Italy. I woke up early just about every morning to see it. I'm not sure why, it didn't change from day to day, but every morning it brought me much comfort. It also brought with it triple digit temperatures, so I'm not sure why I was so sentimental in seeing it! One of the things one might look forward to during vacation is the opportunity to sleep in, and I thought I was looking forward to that as well. And while I love sleeping in as much as anyone, like clockwork, no pun intended , I would wake up in the morning and be greeted by this giant orange ball.
A sign that it would be a great beach day indeed! Keep scrolling below to see a few images of my Calabria trip. And what does this magazine cover have to do with it?? Say what? I've been reading Success Magazine since the 90s now. It's one of the few magazines I actually subscribe to and actually read! Unlike the many others, that end up in my recycling bin barely opened, but I'm too lazy to cancel, Success gets read cover to cover, and each issue is saved for future reading.
It's my go-to source for inspiration, business motivation, self-improvement articles and overall guide for great living. It's multi-purpose to say the least. A great resource not just for entrepreneurs such as myself but also ideal for just about anyone who is into self-improvement and betterment, and who shouldn't be? Imagine my downright shock, amazement, out-of-this-world moment I had when my phone rang and have the other person on the line say they were calling from Success Magazine.
But it's no joke! If you picked up the August issue, there you see my image! It's not a huge article, by any stretch of the imagination, just a simple quote on business matters. But what an honor it was for me to flip open my absolute favorite magazine and see my own image! Just one more validation that I am on the right path!
And what am I holding? Some anise pizzelle, of course! Get your recipe here! Who's that in Success Magazine?!? As exciting as being featured in Success Magazine was, would you believe it wasn't the only place where I saw my name in print this summer? Last year I submitted an article for publication to another great magazine, Tastes of Italia.
It was December , the publisher didn't seem overly interested, said they would keep it on file but that I was free to submit it elsewhere. Time passed, as it always does, and it just sat in my virtual folder on my desktop. I did not submit it elsewhere and figured some day, I would post it here on the blog. It was on Calabria, so a pleasure to write it, but I honestly forgot all about it. Then while I am in Italy, I get an email: "I'm writing to let you know how much I enjoyed your article on Tastes on Italia, it's made me want to visit this region! My magazines are stacking up at the post office, my internet connection is spotty and think he must be referring to a blog post or something.
I respond with a short but polite email. And yes, I can help him and you find a suitable place to vacation in Calabria! Contact me if interested. I landed at 8pm or would have gone the same day. And there you have it:. Hum, there's an article on Calabria in here! I wonder who wrote it? On the cover is a story entitled "Craving the flavors of Calabria. Oh look who wrote this great feature! And sure enough, there it is! Not only it's my article, it's a beautiful 6 page spread, with a mention on the cover and the highlighted story from the editor on the first few pages!
I can hardly believe it! It's been beautifully laid out, barely edited and with my email address at the bottom, hence the emails. Be sure to pick up a copy ASAP! I got an email a few days later from the publisher letting me know that they had published the article and that they did not email me before as things change at the last minute in publishing and they did not want to disappoint me.
No disappointment at all on my end! And it really was a nice surprise! How did all this press make me feel? See below! Success and Tastes of Italia? This is how it feels! Success Magazine, Tastes of Italia, I was on a roll!
Things to Do in Bologna: How to Spend 72 Hours in Italy’s Foodie Capital
They say good things come threes, right? What was around the corner? I didn't have to wait long to find out! Here's a hint:. What does this have to do with it? Chicken Soup? Not any chicken soup, Chicken Soup for the Soul, that is! I remember many years ago, I bought my mom her first Chicken Soup for the Soul. As a fan of Jack Canfield seriously, pick up his books now! And I often read them myself, especially during travel, at the airport or on a flight. They make good travel books, for some reason.
The stories are "bite size" and as someone who must finish a chapter when I start it, sometimes I just need a quick pick-me-up of the inspirational kind. A few months back, I went to their website and saw a call for stories on stepping out of your comfort zone. My first thought was, "When have I stepped out of my comfort zone?
This was March I didn't hear anything either way and much like the story at Tastes of Italia, I moved on. I find that you have to "move on" a lot and fast when starting a business. You can't focus too long on the Nos, you can't sit back and wait, you can't be lazy, despite my business name, and wait for things to come to you. You propose, you submit, you knock on enough doors that if the answer is no, or you don't get any answer, you just move on. And then I get the phone call. Who are you and where are you calling from??
Clearly, I had received no such calls or emails. Long story short, signed permission and all, my little nugget of inspiration will be published in an upcoming Chicken Soup for the Soul: Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone. And once again, a publication I look up to, read and enjoy, will now feature yours truly. Oh the things that do happen precisely when you step outside your comfort zone!
So since summer is ending on such a high note, what's next? Contemplating what's next Decisions, decisions I see the above as signs that I am on the right track and I have come back from Italy full-speed ahead! I am excited for and where it will take me, most of all, to Italy! I've received numerous referrals for private trip consultations, have more professional writing up my sleeve and have received inquires about appearing on a number of Podcasts.
Not to mention endless cooking classes , both public and private ones!
My Book on Amazon!
Lots to do, see, plan and work towards, that's for sure! Turns out, there's nothing lazy about us after all! Interested in joining us on our adventure, click the contact us button to reach us. I respond to all inquires! I'm going to gain how much weight this summer? The making of zucchini blossom fritters! Calabria's famous hot peperoncino. A stunning rainbow as seen from our kitchen window. My dad's hometown of Montepaone. Anchovies pizza - try it before you judge it! Pure deliciousness! See that ricotta on the right? Ate it, just about every.
The much coveted zucchini blossoms. Now isn't that a more useful bouquet of flowers than roses? The trulli of Alberobello. I get really excited about mine, if I do say so myself, and the conversation quickly turned to Italy. Just about everyone at the table I was sitting at had been to Italy, which no longer surprises me.
Travel is not longer what it used to be. Not something reserved for the elite or privileged, or even for a special occasion, travel now is a way of life, and Italy still remains a top destination. Shops along the way- pic up a few souvenirs! A few had even been to each of these locations several times.
Asking questions like this helps plan my business and culinary tours. As a native of Calabria , I am more than happy to tell people about the South, and this time, I focused on telling my companions about Puglia. A neighbor of Calabria , Puglia still remains somewhat undiscovered but its beauty, scenery, cuisine and history begs to be discovered. Located in the heel of the boot shaped country, I have a feeling Puglia is headed towards being the next Tuscany. Yet Puglia still manages to remain relatively unknown and unspoiled. You would be hard pressed in finding a local speaking English or a menu aimed at tourists while visiting Lecce.
Filled with churches, 22 of them to be exact, it would also be hard, if not impossible, to take a walk in Lecce and not find a church. Be sure to visit the Piazza Duomo as that is where you will find the most ornately decorated Baroque buildings. Be sure your camera is charged! Divided into two sections, the old and the new, a bridge brings them together, so you will be able to see both sides without any concerns. Fish is king in Gallipoli , so chances are, you will find it on any menu in any restaurant while visiting here.
While you are likely to find a few tourist shops here and there, this is one place where the authenticity is truly felt. Oh the waters of Puglia- stunning! Located a bit further north than Lecce , Alberobello is becoming a must-visit town for anyone visiting Southern Italy. While the small town is adapting to the new influx of visitors, what is attracting these travelers are the trulli themselves. Small, conical-shaped, and built with local limestone, the small, casual homes are different enough that they draw in a crowd. You will now find numerous tourist shops along the main road, Rioni Monti , in which you can buy anything under the sun shaped in a cone!
A "primitive trullo". The flowers look even more beautiful against the white homes. Required by the city to maintain their white homes pristine, the government offsets the expense by paying for half of the cost. This is the best way to see this city: getting lost. I remember growing up hearing this song over and over and over again!
The singer, Domenico Modugno was the proud son of Polognano a Mare. If there were ever a perfect day trip while touring Italy, Polignano a Mare would be it. The white-washed streets again and stunning churches again make it the ideal setting for a leisurely walk, enjoying a gelato in hand. Just about 18 miles from the capital of Bari , Polignano a Mare makes for the ideal location for a day trip from just about anywhere in the surrounding areas.
I want to re-explore this region again before the mass crowds learn about it! I mean, I want to tell the world about the South, but I also don't! Care to join me, a Southern native? Allow me to lead the way! Be sure to check out our culinary and culture tour of this incredible region!! We will be going to all of the above stops and many more! The Feast of St. Image from Opusdei. In Italy, I have come to believe that you don't need much reason in order to celebrate life!
It seems like at least a few times a month, there's a reason to get together, order cake, celebrate! There are also a lot of "Saint" holidays in Italy! Francis, St. Antonio, St. Giuseppe and of course, St. Giovanni, or St. Celebrated just two weeks after St. Anthony, see previous post , St. Giovanni Battista celebrates St. John the Baptist and while growing up in Italy, my family was no different in celebrating, particularly because my dad's name was Giovanni. As stated, Italy has many such religious holidays celebrating saints and depending on the location and region, it can be a full celebration with parades, fireworks and processions or it may be more subdued, or as subdued as Italians can do anything!
John include Florence, Genoa and Turin, as St. John is their patron saint.
Just about every small town in Italy has a patron saint, which is celebrated at various times during the year. Many businesses are closed on this day, as well as most public offices.
Terre di San Rocco @ Golosaria 2015
A Mass, fireworks, parades, processions and other traditional festivities take place in these cities and families gather to celebrate their saint. Fireworks are displayed over the Arno River in Florence, so if you find yourself there during this time of year, you will be in for a treat. Painting of John baptizing Jesus google images.
In Italy, the relationship between Godfather and Godchild is very strong. What does this have to do with St. Giovanni, you ask? John and Jesus, they now have an unbreakable bond. Many Godfathers and Godchildren celebrate this day with small tokens of gifts or simply treating each other to an espresso or gelato.
