What is it? It was my first reaction at receiving the Daring Kitchen email. Then, I learn that they are a sort of Ravioli. I’m Italian and so I have the bad habit to relate foreign kitchen to local traditions 🙂 But I regained almost immediatly my rational side: I’m a proud member of Daring Kitchen and I want to learn more about cooking.

I want to let you discover how beatiful is Castelluccio di Norcia, an enviromental diamont in Umbria in the protected area of Sibillini Mountains. You can reach them just driving a car or taking a bus from Norcia (far almost 30 km, check the timetable and day weeks of bus services). You don’t trust me…
