Mangia! Have you ever been to an Italians house for dinner? Chances are, if you did, you have some vivid memories! It’s likely that you have memories of the food they served and even they way the gathering is centered in the kitchen.
A few months ago I connected with Dina on Instagram. We connected quickly on our love of hospitality and Italian culture. Today Dina and I will be sharing glimpses into what the table looked like in our Italian families, along with the role that food played. Also you will find us focusing on the areas we hope to cultivate in our own homes, along with those we hope to change. Join us in this conversation about how one culture approaches hospitality, and what we can learn from it!
