Virginia Carlsten is an American who has been living between the US and Italy for the past 18 years. She was living in Rome with her husband until 2009 when they moved to Charleston, South Carolina. They moved back to Italy in January 2012 and are living in Puglia with their daughter.
The idea of this blog came from discoveries in her own kitchen, as well as the different flavors experienced in the kitchens of others while living in different parts of Italy, and during her travels. This is a food blog not just of recipe ideas, but also the exploration of the 20 breads of Italy, region by region, town by town.
