Traveling through cookbooks and novels has its benefits. No TSA folks manhandling my person (in Frankfurt they are so invasive…I thought I’d landed myself a girlfriend she searched me ever so thoroughly). No costly flights and crowded little seats with strangers spilling into your space. Eww.. No jet lag. No, this doesn’t mean I travel is outlawed from my dreams…it means I am looking on the positive aspects of staying put while we cannot take international flights.
This time, we traveled to Italy via this very old book - Cooking Without Frontiers. Review of this book may be found at Novel Meals.
