Italian TV Recipes
My son and I recently returned to the United States after having spent three months in Ischia, the Neapolitan island in Italy that is home to my ancestors and my husband. Although many people think that we live some dream while we're there, we really don't. I am not on vacation. I work as a freelance journalist, just as I do from the States. Worse than that, I have to keep American hours, which means that I have to work in the middle of the night. We traveled with a six-month-old this time, which meant we had to deal with our jet lag and his. Then, he got sick, very sick. He had diarrhea for almost an entire month. He's much better now. When we first arrived in April, it was very, very cold, and when we were leaving in June, it was very, very hot. So, while people who heard that I was on an island in Italy for three months imagined me sightseeing, lounging on the beach, and eating at fancy Italian restaurants, I was actually changing many, many a dirty diaper, sick with worry, working all hours of the night with no sleep, and crying – a lot.
What I looked forward to – other than my son finally getting better and playing on the beach, which did happen toward the end of our stay – were cooking shows on Italian TV. Although I was in no position to try new recipes while in Italy, I am already taking to the kitchen here in the States. Here are some of the recipes I came across on Italian television that I plan on making ASAP (and you might like to do the same):
