Please stay'll be worth it!

I am out there! Still alive, I promise. It's just that I've been working. Hard. In Tuscany. And then on vacation in Rome, Siena and Florence with my man. So it has been difficult to write, especially since the Italians still haven't figured out the wi-fi thing. Can you blame them? They've got more important things to do-- like eat gelato three times a day and raise Tuscan heirloom pigs.

So, before you go and desert me for good, know that I am going to be back --soon--with lots of great stories, recipes and photos from my travels to Italy. The wine harvest, the food, the wood-fired oven cooking classes... it's all still to come. And much more. so stay with me.

PS: in addition to new stories and adventures to report, my blog will have a new name when I return. It seems that someone out there already has Joy of Cooking as their moniker. Someone with a highly successful cookbook and one that is backed by a powerful and potentially litigious publishing company. Ok, ok. I get it. It was time for a change anyway.

Fall, my favorite season, is underway, the leaves are changing and the weather turning cool and inviting. What better time for a change of scenery?

Thanks for staying with me and for the patience. I hope to repay you with porcini mushrooms and wild boar salame, chestnut liquor and wildflower honey...

A prestissimo!
