“Mangiare per vivere e non vivere per mangiare”*

Ravioli cooked in a family broth recipe ~ “Pasta in brodo” and Putanesca sauce.

During the 16th century, broths were the ways in nobilities’ kitchens.

 Bringing to life from past to the present, with no Nobel blood… this broth, is all about the Etruscan’s honor who tickled me to add the flavors and nutrients from my grandmother’s recipe broth.  Any broth you crave during a cold day.

Italians…”There are three things can’t never been tampered with.”

                        Soccer, The Pope, and Grandma’s recipes.

A recipe cannot replace a memory…  

Grandma’s sauce ~ a speck of it:

Tomato paste


Chili pepper

Parsley, Basil, Thyme and Sage

Olives and Anchovies

And of course, red Italian wine.

For a perfect finale, from Parma, a sculpture capturing the essence of the moment. Parmigiano Reggiano.     Voila!

Soccer – World Cup champions against Brazil 4 – 1 (Mexico City).  With soccer rhythm and stamina, “Long live Gianni Rivera, The Golden Boy.”

Pope “Social justice cannot be attained by violence. Violence kills what it intends to create”

“Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought” Hallelujah – the song.
