Benvenuti, my friends! Welcome to my new website! During the past month, I’ve been working with my good friend, Francesco, a talented web designer based in Abruzzo, as well as his colleague, Antonio, a graphic artist (don’t you just love the Majella’s peaks rising out of the pot in the logo?), on a new look and feel for the site. They flawlessly interpreted my vision for a modern yet rustic space that bridges my life and career in New York with my passion for Italy and its regional gastronomy.
In addition to my blog posts, the site now features a Recipes page which is searchable by course, occasion or Italian region. I’m still in the process of uploading all of the recipes I’ve published since the inception of the site, but until then, you can search for your favorites by key word (e.g., “lentils”) in the “Search” field found on the sidebar of each page. I’m also working out a few other kinks such as installing a blogroll with updates from my favorite bloggers.
I’m particularly excited that I now have a place to share information about Catering and Cooking Classes (for those of you in the greater NYC area) as well as Majella Home Cooking holiday gifts and Salsa di Pomodoro Fresco (for anyone in the US). After the holidays, I’ll post information and tips about my favorite food spots and hidden Italian gems in the “Exploring Italy” page. Please have a look around and make yourself at home! I’m still getting a feel for it too!
Buon appetito! A presto!
P.S. – While I was testing out the new site’s functionality, I published a recipe for a winter stew of Fregola e Ceci. Hope you check it out!
