Ciao Firenze, off to Bologna! (this is just a test)

One of the reasons to move to Bologna- don’t need umbrellas when you have portici (archways) for miles

I’ll be in Bologna for a month- to experience a new Italian cityย and learn everything possible about the cuisine of the Emilia-Romagna! This is the stuff Italian food dreams are made of!

A lot of people ask “so what brought you to Florence?” and the answer is essentially I’d always wanted to move to Italy and work in food and wine. They also ask “what’s your blog all about?” This blog is about where & drink eat but also about an American-born food enthusiast who moved to Italy from Seattle. In the past, I never thought anything more of Florence than a touristic city and was surprised to learn it was indeed a pretty cool place to live. Continue Reading

Mostly, I wanted to update my article on Aperitivo in Florence because there were some spots that have gone horribly downhill and it took some personal visits to realize horrifically how disgusting they were in both terms of service and quality. It’s a real bummer when recommendations get outdated, usually due to a rise in popularity, If people catch on to a good place in Florence, it usually doesn’t stay secret for long (which should usually be a good thing!) Unless locales are prepared for the increased volume, they usually can’t keep up with providing consistent quality and service.

Here is the link to my updated post:

Aperitivo in Florence- a round-up

And while I was at it, I realized the article I wrote on Where to Eat in San Niccolo (the area near Piazzale Michelangelo) was also a bit outdated so I cleaned it up, with a realization that most places in that area suck. Florence, what is wrong with you?! (Sometimes) Continue Reading
