LAMPEDUSA : : The southernmost part of Italy and Italy's most southern island. Neighbouring island include Tunisia, Malta and Sicily. It has a interesting and colourful history, a landing point for the ancient Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans and Amazighs; once part of the Kingdom of Sicily, raided by the Ottoman Empire, setled by a Maltese knight. Lampedusa is also home to stunning and dramatic beaches - and we would love to spend the summer there.

Not that we need any more reasons, but here are five good reasons to LOVE pasta. 1. Pasta is a sustainable food. 2. Pasta is a staple of the Mediterranean diet. 3. Pasta is low in sodium and fat. 4. Pasta does not make you fat. 5. Pasta is versatile and can please everyone. http://www.barillagroup.com/en/pasta
What is the Mediterranean diet? You may have heard of it before, maybe not. It is a dietary model which originated in the countries of the Mediterranean basin. The Mediterranean diet is rich in fruit, vegetables, pulses, whole grain cereals, fish, dried fruit and low animal fat content. This for example includes olive oil, tomatoes and of course, pasta. http://www.barillagroup.com/en/mediterranean-diet
Halfway between Milan and Venice, Verona is a popular tourist destination. And for good reason; art, architecture, opera, literary fame, the list goes on. Ciao, we'll be at Casa di Giulietta. http://www.planetware.com/tourist-attractions-/verona-i-vn-vr.htm

BOLOGNA - Located in the food loving region of Emilia-Romagna, Bologna is a foodie capital and definitely on our travel Tuesday hit list. Bologna is known as the birthplace of ragu, which is used in some famous regional dishes you may have already enjoyed, such as lasagne, and with tagliatelle. https://bolognauncovered.com/2013/04/23/bologna-for-food-lovers/
Zeppole are delicious fried dough balls topped with sugar and sometimes filled with creams or flavoured custard, essentially Italian donuts. They can also be known as St Joseph's Day cakes, as they are eaten to celebrate St Joseph's Day. What ever you call them, they sound delicious. Image credit Australian Gourmet Traveller
WEEKEND BRUNCH VIBES | Toasted crunchy bread, a thick layer of delicious Pesto Genovese, plenty of Smoked Salmon, fresh juicy tomatoes, chilli and cocktail onions. Another great way to use our Pesto Genovese - perfect for a lazy weekend brunch.
