As you may have noticed if you are a follower/reader, I have been writing for awesome publications such as Eater. A most recent one includes a quick run-down on the craft beer scene in Italy and some of the most interesting bottles in production.

Some food for thought I’ve been chewing on: I enjoying writing and I love sharing my passion for all things Italian (primarily food and drink) with everyone I meet whether in person or online. This should be the foundation of why we write and blog- it is to share our passion and helpful information. I love the community of writers, and all of the unique aspects they contribute and hold the sentiment that we should all stick together. Innovation requires inspiration (a fine line of course, straight-up carbon-copying and imitation is NOT the highest form of flattery) and I was more convinced of this after listening to this Ted Radio Hour via NPR:
While we all have a unique voice and should be ourselves, because authenticity is one of the biggest keys to success in just about anything.
That being said, I don’t ever want to take myself too seriously. Food and drink should be fun- it’s Italy for crying out loud! I LOVE learning from the talented creative people out in the world. To all you experts out there, thank you for providing such fine examples to people like myself. And thanks to fellow writers in Florence like Arttrav, Lost in Florence, Emiko Davies, CPIF and Girl in Florence who show that a creative community in a city like Florence can be collaborative. I can’t imagine how hard it would have been had I came to Florence only to find myself in a shark pool.
In addition to that, I’d like to invite you to check out other writers/publications/blogs who provide me tons of inspiration! I have a whole blogroll to the right of my site (which I am working on to be a unique page, so bear with me). I’d also like to give a HUGE thanks to Pinta Medicea, Beerhouse Club in Florence, Diorama and Archea Brewery. They provided immense support when I was researching this topic. And you should all go there to taste their unique, craft Italian beers.
