Mini-Review of Chewing the Fat

“A remarkable insight into the realities of Italian food. This book lays bare the multiple dimensions of Italian gastronomy: geography, politics, social background, education and economics. It is an eloquent dissection of the nuances of the world’s favorite cooking as well as a magical exercise in memory. A brilliant reconstruction of the kitchens and cookery (and much else besides) of a previous generation.” -Tom Jaine, Food writer, publisher, critic, and restaurateur

Nichi Vendola – Does Italy’s Gay Communist Stand a Chance?

Last week, Silvio Berlusconi had a snide go at homosexuals. His attack led to widespread uproar both in Italy and abroad. The comment – “better to like beautiful girls than to be gay” – was probably aimed at one Nichi Vendola, an Italian politician who also happens to be gay. Vendola is the president of the Italian region of Apulia, and he seems to be readying himself for elections.

Generally, it is clear who captains which political parties in Italy, as you will discover from this nautically flavoured voyage into the world of Italian politics.
