About

Ciao!! I am Ishita from India and am passionate about Italy & everything Italian. My love for Italy began when I first visited the country years back and fell in love with its rich history, beautiful culture and friendly people. Since then I have been writing, reading and traveling the country any chance I get.

In 2015 I decided to learn the Italian language and improve my travel experience in the country. Italy sparked in me a thirst for travel and a thirst to know more about myself. If you want to know a little more about me read this and this 🙂

  6. I love your love of Italy! I went on a tour through Florence, Venice, Verona, Rome, and Assisi, with my parents during my high school senior year spring break, and your essays make me want to go back today! I can’t wait to see more of your work!

    P.S. Thank you so much for liking my Perfect-for-a-Party Popcorn Chicken piece! I hope I can do for you with the American South what you do for me with Italy!

  7. Ah I am SO glad that you stopped by my blog – I too LOVE Italy, but alas, I live in France, but maybe you might enjoy learning a little about France via my blog, which essentially ‘Franglais’ cooking, but often than not, includes photos and little cultural stories on my life in France. I am going to begin to follow you and we can be Italy ‘anoraks’ together………a bientot. Lindy x

If you woudl like to read/see a little more on France, then my posts on ‘Gateau au Yaourt and Lake Annecy’, Eggs Mimosa, Poulet a la Provencale and Saint Pal de Vence, and Grated Carrot Salad and Chateau de Monte Christo’ are good places to begin without trawling through lots of posts. There is also a section on the site -‘Paris on a Budget’ which is just about Paris, where I live – but I much prefer Sienna!

    Nice blog! I, too, am a fan of ‘things Italian’ … Scuderia Ferrari, lasagne, Pavarotti, ice cream, Rossini, Sophia Loren, Fellini, one of the most rousing National Anthems I know and the lovely snuggly fleece top I bought in Venice. All these things more than forgive the Fiat Strada I once had, which was the biggest PoS I ever owned!

  58. Touching how much you love my homeland. I have been hating it my whole life 😦 Only now, as a 40 something “girl”, I have started appreciating it. Why? Simply because I have no other way, just see it through pink lenses, just like a tourist. So lately I began wandering and walking from town to town, even my own, sipping all the beauty of them. Not taking into consideration the struggles of the everyday life in a Country where bureaucracy and dishonesty are a steady constant habit. Unfortunately.
