What a lovely round-up. Now that I'm done feasting I am eyeing the festivals in Italy... in September... I will wait till September. Happy New Year!


Lentil soup... ahhh! Another memory of my nonna who knew how to do soup and made even a little kid love lentils. Gotta check some of the recipes during this wet & cold winter we're having.


It all looks so good. I'm really liking the leek and chestnut soup link. Thanks.

Thank you for including my reflections of a celebratory lunch with my in-laws in your post. I also love your lists of Eating Italy and UpComing Food Festivals. Going to a sagra in Italy is one of the most memorable experiences of any trip. Your posting helps make planning possible.
Grazie and Buon Anno


I'd love to try one of the lentil recipes this week. It's also a tradition in France, but we ate so much on New Year's Eve, that we've been on our own detox ever since :)
I'm also planning to make more vegetable dishes this year - picked up a cookbook in Rome titled, appropriately, Verdure. Think it will be fun to try Italian veggie dishes because I'm not too familiar with them - beyond eggplant & chicoria!
Thanks for another great week in Italian food :)


Some very wonderful sounding recipes you've gathered and consolidated. I'm especially ingtrigued by the lentil/pumpkin stew! Thank you for sharing.

Pasta e Fagioli - mmmmm! Great post! I wish I could make it to one of those festivals - that would be an amazing adventure.


That plate of bucatini is marvelous! Will have to check out the other links for more Italian goodness! Thanks!


Claudia - September will be a great month for festivals in Italy. There are many wine festivals....of course I'll keep you posted as I find them.

Lael - Thank you ver much for your kind comment! I'm honored. Yes, I hope that the listings of upcoming food and wine festivals will help those traveling to Italy visit one. Buon anno anche a voi!

Katie - You're welcome! Happy New Year's also to you!

Kate - Yes, I hope you can make it to a festival. They can be a lot of fun, and the food is always memorable. Do you have plans to travel in Italy in 2011?


Yum! I have to make it to some of those festivals!

I really love all of the photos that you've posted here. The bread looks especially delicious!
