This page features Central Italy which covers four of the country’s 20 regions that includes Rome, the city ruled by the pope. It’s also the home of wine-rich hills, renaissance heroes, and medieval towns!

Acciaroli is a port on the Cilento coast on the Tyrrhenian sea. It’s a place in Italy with a high number of centenarians, they are people who lived and celebrated their 100th birthday. The secret? Fresh air, exercise, home-grown food, and active sex life!

Vallone dei Mulini or also known as the Valley of Mills. This wonderful creation is located behind Piazza Tasso, Sorrento Italy. It is named after the ancient wheat mills that were once located there. The ruins of it are still clearly visible among the luxuriant foliage lush grass!

On to Italian food! Here, we have tiramisu, a coffee-flavored Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavored with cocoa. They included a recipe so you can easily make it at home.

Gelati is an Italian style ice cream. It is generally made from a base of milk and sugar with comparably lower fat content compared to other styles of ice cream and considered to be Italy’s social unifier!

This foodie trail feature is interesting! The trail begins in Turin, a great city blessed with an astonishingly rich in products and an increasing number of young and innovative proprietors and chefs.

Another recipe we can’t wait to try is Bread Gnocchi with Black Olive Pesto & Pecorino from the Valle d’Itria. It’s usually made with Puglia’s most ubiquitous produce, including black olives, pecorino cheese, and olive oil.

Olivelle Sweet Pairing Oil & Vinegar Set ($17) Speaking of cooking, we also received a set of indulging condiments.

Barrel Aged Balsamic High Density Vinegar. From grilled chicken and steak to Brussel sprouts and potatoes, this vinegar is a perfect addition to anything. It has an amazingly fresh flavor with the sweetness and richness of balsamic vinegar.

Sweet Cream Butter Olive Oil. It’s an extra virgin olive oil with the creaminess of real butter, but without saturated fats. Switching it out for butter provides greater health benefits!

Harvest Fig Barrel Aged Balsamic Vinegar. This balsamic vinegar is deliciously sweet with a note of deep raisin, honey, and vanilla. It’s an ideal condiment for adding depth to your dish.

Aside from its storied places and unbelievably fantastic history, Italy is popular for their delicious dishes and uniquely flavored condiments that adds a twist to regular meals. The book is so informative. I’ve learned a lot of things about Italy, and it gives a feel like having traveled over it. The accessory is a beautiful addition too, as a fun reminder of Italian pleasures. The condiments are definitely going to be useful in our kitchen!
