Amanda Tabberer wrote, several years ago, a wonderful and visually stunning book about the Amalfi Coast, "My Amalfi Coast", and has now followed-up that book with a feast for the eyes and mouth-watering homage to the food of the Amalfitan Coast: "Amalfi Coast Recipes". In it, la Signora Tabberer shares authentic Amalfitan recipes that have passed down through the generations and shares the secrets of a host of local chefs and cooks who take us on a gastrnomic journey through one of the most beautiful parts of Italy -mmmmmmmmm, ho l'acquolina in bocca!!!

At Italia 500 we've been offering Italian courses, in Sydney, since 1995 and one of the most beautiful aspects of learning Italian is that it opens the door to a culture of unrivalled richness and diversity. In this blog we'll be sharing some of our favourite books, movies, places in Italy to visit, music, links to podcasts, information about local and international Italian themed events, and the odd "personal" view, in the hope that it will encourage you to delve further into a culture which continues to inspire us and millions of people all over the world.
