It is hard to believe that it was 10 years ago that I sent in my first recipe to The Florentine, to Nita and Tony Tucker. They had read my blog and asked me to share my recipes, which I had gathered from local chefs, vendors at Florence’s Central Market and moms. Publishing an English-language newspaper in Florence was such a wonderful idea, and I was happy to participate. Being able to plan your week around the events in Florence was great, as even the Florentines never knew what was going on until they heard about it that day! Since then, the wonderful interviews and information on secret spots to visit have made The Florentine a must in our lives.
