As this is my 2nd post today, I will be brief. This post is about giving some love to those who have come before me and blazed a trail on the cyber-highway.
Southern Visions Travel Blog – written by Leigh Vincola and representing all the ins and outs of what is happening in Puglia. Leigh discusses seasonal meals, seasonal fruits and veggies, seasonal affairs, and all things Puglia which is to say, completely seasonal.
Parla Food- Katie Parla is one of the most enterprising people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She can tell a remarkable food story in concise terms and a few carefully chosen photos. I envy very few people, but I sometimes find myself envious of Katie’s life living in Rome making jaunts down to Napoli and Palermo all the while soaking up La Dolce Vita through the curious eyes of an intellectual at play.

Do Bianchi - Is anyone more prolific than Jeremy Parzen? Does everyone know Jeremy? I think Jeremy knows everyone and his connections and passions for natural wines, natural music, and unnaturally good company make him an icon of the blog and Italian Wine Community.

On the Wine Trail in Italy - Alfonso Cevola pens this exceptional blog and his posts tug at my heart as much as my mind as he draws comparisons between his beloved Italy and his home in the USA. Alfonso is part educator, part of the original Italophiles that delivered Texas their passion for all things Italy. I bought wine from Alfonso many moons ago and I still want to be like him in many ways. A champion of a great cause.
