London Overture

As my Californian summer comes to a close, I am packing and getting ready to embark for my birthday excursion in London, England. Strangely enough I spent my birthday in London last year as well. I will be the ripe age of 23… better start looking into Medicare. Ah, the life of a jet setter!

Luckily, though my birthday happens to be on a Monday, it also happens to fall on a Bank Holiday, as well as the Notting Hill Carnival. I’m not quite sure what to expect for the carnival but my boyfriend informed me that it’s bound to be a good time. I remember I wanted to go last year when I was in London with my mother, but the news reports of deaths and riots kind of deterred her desires… hmm this should be interesting!

I am anxiously anticipating my return to the motherland (Italia) on September 1st where I will start my internship at Ferrarini and eat all the cured meats and Parmigiano Reggiano that my heart desires. How I miss the readily available delicacies of the land I call home.

As soon as my crazy summer ends, I will get back into the swing of things and revamp this website. Until then, Cheerio! I am off to London!


American Hiatus

Hey guys, Michelle here. Sorry I have been so absolutely embarrassingly terrible about updating this summer. Truth is I haven’t been doing much interesting eating now that I am back home in sunny California visiting home for the summer. Luckily, I will be back in Italy in a week and a half and ready to recharge my stomach with delicious and healthy food free of preservatives and high fructose corn syrup.

Just updating to let you all know that I am still alive, and that soon soon I will be back in action, back to the Grassroots Gourmet.

Ciao!
