Please disregard my emails regarding your post! :) I love the direction you went with this. You were inspired on a truly personal level. Loved reading this post and the dish looks delicious! Round up will be posted soon!

The fusion between your homeland and your current home is the perfect recipe to share with the review of this book.


What a delicious fusion dish Simona, and how great that you got to meet the author! I think if I want fava beans I'll have to try growing them myself. As for pig, just caught one (fairly young) in my trap. So, wild but good.

Simona Carini

Thank you Debra :) I found both the stories and his musings highly interesting and engaging. Thank you for choosing this book.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Wendy :)

Simona Carini

You're such an amazing gardener, Claudia, I am sure you'll be able to grow nice fava beans. The young leaves are also edible :)


Yum! Alas I haven't seen fresh fava beans in the markets around here this year... and the artichokes are looking rather wan. When I see a post like this, I want to move to California, or back to Italy!

I just got fava beans at our local CSA. Knowing that you were actually in Italy when writing about this makes it extra special. Not sure yet what I'm going to make with the favas....

Simona Carini

That is strange, Frank. I wonder why. I am no expert so I don't know how delicate fava beans are or otherwise. I hope you will have a nice surprise still. The season here is not long, but I certainly enjoy it :)

Simona Carini

That's nice, Cathy. When fava beans are tender and extra fresh, one easy way to eat them is just out of the pod, with a little bit of salt and some shaved pecorino cheese. Enjoy!
