Hello from Italy!

Hi, I'm Lucia, I'm italian at 100% and I live in Milano. I'm still a teenager but cooking is my passion. I love every kind of food from every country. So I tought that post in an american cooking forum is a good occasion to improve my english and share my italian recipes!
I'm sorry for every gram mistake I did, I study english at school but I'm still young, and I have so much to learn. signal my mistakes, it will be a good advice for me.

Glad to see you finally made it her Lucia!! You are doing great with your English! What is your favorite thing to make? When I think of wonderful Italian food I think of maybe a seafood risotto, or some kind of chicken with garlic, lemon, kalamata olives, tomatoes, and a bit of white wine. So........if you have some favorite recipes you would like to share with us just fine the forum that best suits them i.e., post chicken recipes in the Chicken, Turkey Forum, pies and cakes in the Dessert Forum, etc. Looking forward to seeing your favorite recipes.

thank you everybody! how many anwersin few minutes! in my city there are several typical recipes. My favourite ones are "cotoletta alla milanese" and "risotto alla milanese". I love them! I think you already have theese recipes but I'll be glad to share mine.
What is my favourite thing to made? Of course sweets and bread (and pizza!). I use to make bread with a particular leaven, we call it "pasta madre" (I really don't know the english name..). It's a leaven that you must "cultivate" in your home and "refresh" it every three days. The real pizza is made with this leaven. If you don't know it I'll be glad to show mine and add some recipes.
I really like this chemical aspect of cooking, in fact I'm doing a scientifical high school.
Oh, great! Some italians here?! That's wonderful, maybe they could help me with english. :)

Ciao Lucia,
I live in Milano too (vicino a parco Solari), but I am English, and your English is a lot better than my Italian, so I am embarrassed! We have another Milanese person here too, he is RDG, and very nice.

Benvenuto a Discuss Cooking!
