Hi everyone! I start this episode with some big news: I’ve moved to Italy! And in the spirit of that move, I’d like to introduce you to someone who knows Italy like the back of her hand, adores it, and will make you want to eat pasta straight away.
Sophie Minchilli was raised in Rome, Italy, to an Italian father and American mother (you may know of her mom — author Elizabeth Minchilli, @eminchilli — and she is passionate about sharing Italian culture. In this conversation, we have a fun, nuanced conversation about Italy. We talk about the huge regional differences in Italy, making friends with the older generation here, and some of her favorite dishes from the part of Italy where I’m living (Puglia).
Sophie and Elizabeth team up to do food tours all around Italy! – you can find more information here: http://www.sophieminchilli.com/food-tours/
