About the Author:

I am a little of a great many things. Every experience and every blessing. And even though the whole may be greater than the sum of it's parts, welcome to this little part of me I call "Ita-liana." Raised in an Italian grocery store/food importing company (which explains why wine and olive oil runs through my veins) this is the part of me that is the very best of my Sicilian and Calabrian roots. Watching my Calabrese mother and grandmother cook for the entire family, with not only expertise and ease, but with an over abundance of love, left it's mark. Travelling back to Italy and learning about family history did the rest, while my Sicilian side kicks in almost intuitively. * © All recipes, photography, illustrations on posts by "ita-liana" and "Recipideo" video content copyright Liana Tumino ©

    La curiosità mi ha attratto acquistare la vostra polenta in sacchetto, nonostante i modi limitati di mangiarla che doverla arrostire al forno, con grande delusione per i miei gusti l’ho trovata insaporita priva di sale e di macinatura troppo fine forse classificandola una polenta perfetta per coloro che non hanno mai mangiato polenta nella loro vita o per i francesi canadesi condita col loro “poutine”.

    Comunque ringrazio per l’opportunità che mi avete dato d’esprimermi su d’un soggetto così delicato ch’è la polenta.
