Yes, we know, in Module 3's center piece we said "food" shouldn't count as one of the "Reasons" why Italy is relevant... however, this "food" video is not just about "food;" it's about the philosophy of cooking all'Italiana!! In fact, we hope that next time you eat Italian food, you remember this video and understand that "cooking Italian" is not about achieving a certain taste, but about embracing a different way of seeing life. Buon Appetito!
