ITALIAN SUMMER  FESTIVALS
It is always festival time in Italy. July and August are most famous for the Palio di Siena, the horserace. We are also preparing for Ferragostohere in the US which takes place in August. Read more about the Palio and other July festival here. http://goitaly.about.com/od/festivalsandevents/a/july_fest.htm.

See below for the Summer Italian Festival schedule in our area Northern California.

SUMMER LIMONCELLO MAKING

"Limoncello is an Italian lemon liqueur mainly produced in Southern Italy, especially in the region around the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the coast of Amalfi and islands of Procida, Ischia and Capri.[1] It is also produced in Puglia, Sicily, Sardinia, Menton in France, and the Maltese island of Gozo. Even though there is debate about the exact origin of the drink, it is at least one hundred years old." (Wikipedia)

Like so many Italian inventions, its origins are folkloric and a matter of debate. Limoncello has long been associated with the Amalfi coast, but was first trademarked only in 1988. Its roots go back many centuries earlier; some historians say fishermen drank it to strengthen themselves against medieval invasions; others claim that monks created it in their monasteries or that it was invented by wealthy Amalfi-area families in the early 1900s.

Our teacher, Valentina will entertain you with many stories and recipes. She is the author of three books. We welcome Valentina!
