catching the moment - no. 4

Here are just some of our favourite dishes and ingredients caught on camera

Cooking has always been a pastime I and my family enjoy.
Traditional Italian and especially Tuscan ‘slow’ cooking is at the heart of many of our favourite dishes, but having lived in the US for many years and with international friends here in Cortona who occasionally miss ‘home-cooking’, I have learned how to create dishes from various parts of the world. Here are just some of our favourite dishes and ingredients caught on camera.

Chinese ravioli by Michela, my daughter.

MY CORTONA

MY CORTONA WAS DUE TO BE LAUNCHED DURING EASTER 2020. UNFORTUNATELY, FOR EVERYONE, COVID 19 MADE AN APPEARANCE.


Our blog had been intended as a central hub for Cortona lovers world-wide, bringing you useful information, profiles of the many interesting people who live & visit the town, up-dates on local news, special stories & upcoming events

With the world still reeling from the pandemic, we have chosen to suspend some features & have decided instead, - at least for now - to bring you a limited version of our blog by introducing a series called MOMENTS.

We would love you to contribute!

We also thought that in the absence of an imminent visit, you might enjoy a little Local news and a few Tips for (future) Trips
We look forward to seeing you soon!
