It's been a long, looong time since I posted about a foodie website. But this is important! Have you been to the website Great Italian Chefs? The photos! The recipes! The history -- food and otherwise. For example, this morning I clicked on Features, then on an article about Sicily's pistachios -- with gorgeous photos of the countryside, by the way -- and ended up reading a wonderful article about Sicily's history.
Great Italian Chefs is part of the Great British Chefs network. It's a foodie club with three membership levels -- free, silver, and gold. Whatever level you choose has benefits above just cruising the website -- but even just stopping by now and then will open your eyes to some new cooking opportunities and also appeal to the traveler in you, armchair or otherwise.
The lasagne above is Lasagne alla Portofino -- pesto lasagne. It's found under Pasta Bake Recipes.
The Great British Chefs website is equally fabulous and so different! Today's focus article is on cooking with wild garlic.
I'm not trying to be confusing. The Italian and British are each half one website. I've signed up for the free membership. If I find that I'm turning to it often, I'll probably upgrade. One membership cover both British and Italian cuisine.
I think I'll check out the cuisine of Liguria before I continue with my day.
You are welcome! :)
And an astronomer said, Master, what of Time?
And he answered:
You would measure time the measureless and the immeasurable.
You would adjust your conduct and even direct the course of your spirit according to hours and seasons.
Of time you would make a stream upon whose bank you would sit and watch its flowing.
Yet the timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness,
And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.
And that that which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space.
Who among you does not feel that his power to love is boundless?
And yet who does not feel that very love, though boundless, encompassed within the centre of his being, and moving not from love thought to love thought, nor from love deeds to other love deeds?
And is not time even as love is, undivided and spaceless?
But if in your thought you must measure time into seasons, let each season encircle all the other seasons,
And let today embrace the past with remembrance and the future with longing.
Keep me away from the wisdom that does not cry, the philosophy that does not laugh, and the greatness which does not bow before children. – Gibran Khalil Gibran
