I'm visiting my parents in New Jersey and thus got to have the real paper New York Times in my hot little hands this Sunday morning. Lucky for me the paper had a number of great Italy-related articles in this issue, including:
36 Hours in Siena
Nice piece on what to see and do in Siena. We also recommend Cane e Gatto (one of our favorite places to eat) and Siena's Tuscan Wine School.
Buffalo Mozzarella, The Great White Whale of American Cheesemaking
Why is it so hard to make buffalo mozzarella in the U.S.? One man's attempt to bring the Italian magic to these shores.
