Sept. Gourmet

I picked up a copy yesterday and was surprised. It is an excellent edition and the article about the program started in Bologna but is becoming more widely availiable throughout Italy that allows you to eat in private homes is fascinating. Check it out. I may have to give them another chance.

      I zeroed in on that one too, but have been inspired by some other things. I breezed through it Fri. P.M. and neeed to spend a bit more time with it.

    2. Thanks for the report - I'll have to pick one up - and, I confess, I got a new subscription after letting mine lapse - I figured that for $1 a month, it was worth it even if there are some dud issues, because I kept buying them from the newstand!

      1. I haven't been too thrilled with them of late, but this one was excellent. Several great articles, and the photos (espec. the cover) were gorgeous.

        1. I'm still in heaven from the pomegranates.

          1. The picture of those canolis drove me crazy. They appear to have candied orange peel in the filling. I was sorry there was no recipe, but it would prabably have been beyond my powers anyway.

              Go for it! Cannolis are dead easy. Start with the recipe on the back of the Ferrara cannoli shell box and improvise to your taste from there. You could make the shells yourself, if you don't mind getting a set of cannoli tubes that can't be used for anything else, and you don't mind doing the deep frying , but if you have a store that sells the boxed shell or a very nice Italian bakery that will sell you just the shells, there's no reason not to try.
              Believe me, you can't get this one wrong.
