Travel to Lidia’s Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and a recipe for Herb and Wild Greens Fritatta
There is a lot to experience and enjoy in this part of Italy. It is still an undiscovered treasure. - Lidia Bastianich (Fodor’s - 2007)
There is nothing that impacts your life quite as much as travel to new destinations and far away places. It opens your mind and can change your perspective about people and different cultures and within these cultures how food and wine play a significant role.
As you may remember, we recently traveled to Europe for a Mediterranean cruise. We had the opportunity to visit several countries and experience the unique food and cultures of places as far away as Asia and some more familiar like Italy. One of the highlights of this incredible journey was the time we spent prior to the cruise in the northeast corner of Italy in Friuli-Venezia Giulia. At the invitation of Lidia Bastianich, we traveled to Friuli to experience a little bit of this beautiful region which has become known as Lidia’s Italy through her books and television series.
