On this Sunday morning, The Washington Post’s feature story in Travel appeared to be about Hoboken. In reality four stories had elements of Italy! Below the fold, Baroque and Happy in the Noto Valley, covered the Ragusa area of Sicily. Going Our Way: Braving the Old Country on Your Own, featured 9 days on the road in Sicily (note to the Post: why no map?). The Navigator: When in Rome, Watch Your Driving, revealed nasty nasty parking tickets and other vehicle violations arriving months after pleasant trips in Italy. And the Hoboken article? All about Buddy Valastro (aka TLC’s Cake Boss), the Italian American cake baker in his family’s 100year old bakery in Hoboken (Carlo’s), and jaunts to his friends’ locations: Picolo’s Cheesesteaks, and Fiore’s Deli. Ah, the interweavings of Italian American lives, with cannoli and mozzarella in America.

The Navigator piece also featured Kathy McCabe, our friend who publishes the Dream of Italy newsletter. Many Olio2go customers have received sample issues with their fantastic olive oil deliveries!
