Hello, curious readers! I thought I’d give you all a little update and news about all the happenings over at the curious “headquarters!” As you may or may not know, I am currently in Seattle counting down the days until I can prance around my chianti wonderland of Florence again! While I am counting down, I am up to some no good food business. Well, maybe not “no good” but some goodies are in the works.
For those of you who have not traveled to Italy and/or a first time reader of this blog- secondo me (according to me;) one of the best inventions Italians have ever made in food and drink history is the art of Aperitivo. I originally touched on it in my aperitivo in Florence round-up and now I’m seeking it out in Seattle.
