How To Connect With Your Italian Roots
With the Winter season approaching, there couldn’t be a better time to connect with your Italian roots and start cooking. With the chill in the air, cooking up a nice warm Italian meal or going to your favorite restaurant – like The Venetian down the road in Weymouth – couldn’t be better! For those that may be feeling disconnected from all things Italy, we have a few ways that may help you feel more connected. Besides visiting the Venetian and trying the dishes above, here are some other ways to feel more connected!
Use more local produce. Choosing to buy fresh produce from your local market or grocery store will make your cooking feel much more similar to the homecooked style of Italian foods. Keep strong familial ties. Try and have sit-down meals, spontaneously call a relative to catch up, whatever it is to make you feel closer to your family – do it! Lastly, eat more, snack less. If you are having strong, full Italian meals, snacking won’t be necessary. Give it a try! Visit us in Weymouth if you don’t feel like cooking.
