ekscrunchy, koreaprincess and franco invite you to join them expanding on the secrets of Italian cuisine

Jump to last reply

Behind us are weeks of fascinating & funny explorations of Italian food, cuisine & recipes, with ekscrunchy, Eloise and franco as the original cast, and recently - since Eloise hasn't unfortunately been around for quite a while - with koreaprincess as a new companion on our virtual gastronomic tours. Till now, though, these gastronomic chats have been scattered over the whole Italian forum, so we've now decided to open a specific thread - not for restaurant recommendations in the first place (though we wouldn't exclude them, I guess), but for questions of Italian home-cooking, particular ingredients, recipe exchange and so on, exploring these topics quite in-depth, and without any reluctance to lead the discussion off-topic - at least, that's our habit of discussing these matters so far, and while we thought for a long while to be all alone in (immensely) enjoying these conversations, quite many other users admitted over the time that they were following, too - silently, unfortunately.

Well, for Roman and Venetian food, we're having our proved and tested threads (where much of our exploration of Italian cuisine originated), which are still going strong, and the new thread is not meant to change this - here are the links to those original threads:
ROME:
ek's gastronomic Rome trip - preparation (don't let the thread's title confuse you): http://www.fodors.com/forums/threadselect.jsp?fid=2&tid=34895007
ek's wonderful trip report: http://www.fodors.com/forums/threadselect.jsp?fid=2&tid=34931625
franco's favourite Roman food (& restaurants): http://www.fodors.com/forums/threadselect.jsp?fid=2&tid=34792415
VENICE:
franco's favourite Venetian food (& restaurants): http://www.fodors.com/forums/threadselect.jsp?fid=2&tid=34791666

For the "small" rest of Italy, though, we thought it might be a good idea to bundle all gastronomic questions & answers, and to make them more easily traceable for you others - we do hope this will help, firstly, to convince Eloise to rejoin us, and secondly, to make our conversation enjoy the participation of many more users who didn't chime in so far!!
