Interesting evolution. I sent this to a friend in Torino, he thought it was very interesting too. He also offered to cook for me if I ever visited, just so I got to taste Italian food made by Italians. Sounds good to me.

    This is a very interesting article - really illustrates how food (and blood) is really integral to a nation concept of its own identity in a way that we really don't fathom here in the U.S.

      Have you been to Italy lately? Especially northern Italy? Milan? Turin? The Italian "identity" is fast fading away. I find this depressing. Half the country is unemployed but they look down their noses at the "sweaty" kitchen work. I think always Americans underestimate themselves when it comes to comparisons with Europe.
