Hi Fragola! What great news to bring and how exiting it must be for you to get a book published! I hope it will be a success!

"It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look." ~Henry D. Thoreau
Photography is my way of painting the atmosphere around me, opening my eyes to the splendour of the world.. Glimpses of my effort can be seen here:
Maraw, thanks! I have a publisher, which will keep pretty much all of the income in a sense but I didn't have to invest any money on the book and they will distribute the book to bookshops and faires...I'll see how it will go, and maybe publish myself the next one

Ciao, e buona giornata!
Thank you all, sweet lovely people!!
Congrats! That is trully awesome!
I was able to understand most of your Italian and read it to hubby. What's the name of the book? Maybe my brother in law in Italy can look for it. Just remind us when it's finally out. So you are like a pioneer in Italy--paving the way for Italy to hit! Great!!! Are you featuring Manicotti, Pizza, Garlic Bread, Raviolli, Pasta in the book? What kind of nuts can you buy in Italy? My BIL has olives trees and has olives pressed for the oil. Excited for you.
Feel free to email me an Italian note. I'll have hubby translate.
OK you have to let us know where we can buy this. . . I would like one for my sister that grew up in Firenze.
Congratulations, I'm sure it will all be wonderful!

I don't have many italian recipes in my book, except for pizza and zucchini pasta. Italians are so proud of their foods that they wouldn't accept very much something that look-like-pasta but it is not pasta. If you try to cook a dish of pasta and you do not follow the traditional way to make it, people could go mad at you even if you don't use the right quantity of water to boil the pasta!! So I am not so so sure I want to go down that road!! But I may try in the future.
Tuo cognato √® molto fortunato ad avere alberi di olive! Sono sicura che vive al sud. Io vivo a Venezia e qui fa troppo freddo per avere alberi di olive.
Qui posso trovare quasi tutti i tipi di noci, I can find almost any kind of nuts, except for macadamia and pecans. It is very easy to get hazelnuts, almonds and walnuts.
Ciao Carolg, saluta tuo marito da parte mia!
i don't think so Magwene... but there are so many fantastic raw books in english, I couldn't compete anyway!!

I think it's so wonderful that you are publishing a book for your country-people to reclaim their health!
