One for the foodies! Found this good blog post about Montalbano’s pasta. Its a wet, rainy day in Scotland, dreams of Italian sunshine needed! Thanks to ‘Another Year in Recipes’ for her blog post…
I’m addicted to reading mysteries. That’s one of the reasons I enjoy adapting recipes from Italy: Trying to follow a recipe written in Italian by Italians for Italians is solving a mystery.

A case in point: recipes from Stefania Campo’s I segreti della tavola di Montalbano: Le ricette di Andrea Camilleri. To successfully prepare dishes from this book makes me feel a kinship to the famously food-loving Sicilian detective, Salvo Montalbano, hero of Camilleri’s series of mystery novels. (I did a whole splendid dinner party from the book last year and wrote about it here.)
