When traveling in Italy and around the Mediterranean, we love to connect with people by learning their centuries-old traditional recipes. We know the internet offers plenty of recipe information, but what feeds us is to remember and celebrate specific faces and places in edible form. What if you could replicate a delicious dish that you savored with the people dear to you, in a beautiful setting and, in so doing, be transported back to that postcard moment?
Our founder Cristiano Bonino likes to say: “Traveling in your kitchen is better than nothing.” Before your next journey, why not cherish your travel memories through cooking at home? The recipes here are the result of much travel, many conversations with housewives, nonne (grandmas), sommeliers, chefs, historians, and food lovers, and plenty of tastings in homes, bakeries, restaurants, and wineries, on farms, and at historic events.
The search field in the upper right-hand corner may make things easier. Enter a favorite ingredient or recipe name and see what pops up. Now more than ever, life is today. Let's be healthy around the table because “we are what we eat.” Whether you say: “Bom apetite” (Portuguese), “Buen provecho” (Spanish), “Bon appetit” (French), “Buon appetito” (Italian), or “Dobar tek” (Croatian), we hope you enjoy a little Mediterranean culture and cuisine with us!
