Chestnuts, the "seed" of traditions and memories

Chestnuts, the "seed" of traditions and memories

I still remember the first time I ever saw a chestnut within its prickly green home. I was around 7 and living in the south of Italy. By that time I of course had eaten my fair share of chestnuts, that were traditionally roasted after every Sunday meal at Nonna’s every Autumn. However the honor of going to pick chestnuts was not bestowed upon me until my father and grandfather thought I was old enough to go into the mountains with them and able to be aware of my surroundings especially on the lookout for the venomous green little snakes that were the topic of every mountain trip when it was time to gather the mushrooms or chestnuts.

I remember my little weaved brown basket and my dad and grandpa both taking out their heavy duty working gloves and thinking to myself, 

Halloween, celebrated with an Italian “Spirit”

Halloween, celebrated with an Italian “Spirit”

The smell of cider floating in the air, the giggles of children dressed in costume giddy for their treats, jack o lanterns smiling at us creepily at every corner. The all American Halloween is one of the oldest holidays to be celebrated and recorded in American History dating back to the 1800s where it is said that immigrants from Ireland brought the mischievous festivities to America as a way to escape the potato famine back home and keep a little of their culture alive. There is no denying that children and adults from all over the United States have really begun taking this particular holiday to a different level in the past decade, with decorations galore, Halloween best costume prizes and neighborhoods known for their full size candy bars, the holiday has come a long way from the original meaning whether it meant warding off bad spirits for better crops, celebrating the Pagan beliefs for others or a festival meant to bridge the gap

Soccer and the Nationalism that Dribbles Alongside it

Soccer and the Nationalism that Dribbles Alongside it

Its overtime and the score is still 1-1. Penalty kicks begin and your team misses the shot, you feel defeated, it’s been a game of over 102 minutes and you need this win. Second player shoots, he scores, you are back in the game of over 102 minutes and you need this win. Second player shoots, he scores, you are back in the game, the hope starts to creep up again, you can do this, your team can win this game… last and final player shoots… he scores….

The Noble Hazelnut

The Noble Hazelnut

If you find yourself in Italy at first sign of autumn you will encounter a feeling of excitement in the air as autumn in Italy is a time of great harvest for everything from vineyards to mushrooms, chestnuts and hazelnuts. It is difficult to explain just how unique Baratti & Milano chocolates are without mentioning the most world renowned hazelnuts that make up the distinct flavor you find when eating any one of our classic chocolates, from the Classic Cremino to our Nocciolato and our Gianduja chocolates, all extraordinary in flavor made from the famously known “Tonda e Gentile” hazelnuts.

Autumn in Italy

Autumn in Italy

We all know how we "Autumn" in America. If you live or are visiting anywhere in the Northeast  the first sign is always the chilly morning air upon waking. Then the increased layers in the evening. Soon everything around us seems colored in hues of browns, yellows, red and orange. Pumpkin spice is in everything you can think of and a visit to the orchards is on the TO DO list. Truly the most majestic of seasons as some landscapes go from an abundance of greenery to a backdrop of artistic

Chocolate and it's "Rich" History

Chocolate and it's "Rich" History

Where did chocolate come from and how did it become the chocolate we love today? A quick research indicates that the “birth” of fermented beverages made from chocolate can be recorded as far back as 450 BC. Chocolate was first introduced in a drink version only and served predominately by the wealthy at large

Ferragosto, The long Italian Summer

Ferragosto, The long Italian Summer

Originally named Feriae Augusti to mean festival of Augustus, Ferragosto still symbolizes a period of rest from the hard labor of the year. It is a time to reflect on what was accomplished and perhaps lay out goals for the next year all while sitting on a beach or expanding your travel repertoire.
