Hi, Italy. There are probably lots of Italian food lovers here, including me (actually, I enjoy a variety of cuisines, but Italian is a favorite)

If there are specific recipes you're interested in, you can use the search button to find them, or just ask and I'm sure you'll get lots of responses. Enjoy

Welcome, italy!

I just visited your site, and was interested in this comment:

If you are an Italian food admirer why spend much money to visit Italy or go to a fancy Italian restaurant when you can save money by cooking your favourite Italian dishes at home?
That's only true to a point. Italian food in this country is very different than that in Italy. Everywhere. Even so-called "authentic" restaurants don't cook the food the way it's done in Italy, and there's no way to really understand that without going there.

Clearly everyone cannot just jump on a plane, but truly, one cannot really get the flavor of another country (or region of the US!) without a personal visit.

Just my 5 cents!

Welcome Italy,

I say it's a good start. True, a visit is best (to anywhere for authenticity) but trying out simple dishes is a beginning. My parents are from Italy and I know most of the foods my mother makes are basic and not very "fancy" but I love them.

Hey, Italy. I'm not sure the forums work quite that way ... hopefully someone with more experience here than I have will chime in, but I think if you search for a specific recipe name (say, pasta bolognese), you will find threads that discuss it and sometimes more.

Or you could start a thread on the topic and see what happens
