All around the world, New Year's Eve Celebrations are a huge event.

To be honest, follow all the traditions connected to New Year's celebrations could be stressful.
With Christmas almost here, it has arrived the moment to honor our culinary culture.
In fact, after the decorating moment the second step concerns the food, which plays an important role - most particularly, the sweets.
From the North to the South, all the Italians sweets are delicious, but when it's Christmas… My friend, Christmas sweets are on a whole new level!
Italian food is famous worldwide.
We are proud to share our food and recipes with the world, but you must know that we can be also a little bit touchy. (Just a little bit….)

We found ourselves residing in a gorgeous apartment right across from the Colosseum in a neighborhood called Monti, Rome. I remember our late night gelati in the Fontana di Piazza della Madonna, frequenting the
First time I came, I immediately fell in love with this city. My first thought? “This is the place where I want to live”.
My name is Elena and I am from a little town called Alessandria, in the north of Italy. It's been 2 years since my arrival in Rome; as you can imagine, my lifestyle and habits were totally different from those I found here!
