Italy: The coolest place on Earth
In Italy, there is a DJ, yes, a DJ, who is traveling throughout Italy collecting working-class Italian folk recipes in order to preserve them for future generations. Yes, unfortunately, industrial food and the homogenization of global culture is even destroying the folk cuisine of Italy. But how cool is it that they want to preserve it? Or that they even have such a rich culinary culture to even care about in the first place? Nobody is trying to document home cooking in Bakersfield for future generations….
Italy is just a fascinating place.
