    Excuse me if I interject. I’m Simona, I’m Italian but I like visiting gourmet blog from other countries. As you know Italy is the land of pasta, that’s why i found the articles interesting!
    I would like to report an Italian site which I personally found lovely. You can find many local products , like pasta but also BIO PRODUCTS as cheese with related recipes and you can also buy these products. I love italian food! Excuse the interruption again!
    Here’s the site in english language

    Bye! simo
