By Enzo Coccia
A famous Neapolitan song says “Comm’ è ddoce e comm’è bella, ʼa città ‘e Pulecenella e me sento furtunato è pecché so’ nnammurato, pecché forse ce so’nato”. And it’s really nice and sweet my city, indisputable how pleasant is to walk...

Zucchini, the king

By Lina Malafronte
April, time of the first fruits and time of news at La Notizia where they never stop trying new combinations of flavors, textures, colors and aromas. This time the protagonist is the zucchini. Whether raw or grilled, baked or fried, loved for its ability to fit to the inspiration and desire of the chef, the Cucurbita pepo, its scientific name, from appetizer to dessert indulges without feeling guilty. Lot of water and only a handful of calories, vitamins and minerals galore, make it the perfect candidate for the warmer weather recipes.

Dining with the world

By Lina Malafronte
Sushi, sashimi, couscous, paella, chicken tandoori, falafel, kebab, noodles: raise your hand if you have never eaten one of these dishes and never done it while comfortably seated in your armchair watching TV. Ranging from Indian to Japanese, from Spanish to African, not forgetting the Chinese and Lebanese cuisine, the list of dishes at your mouse - or index finger - certainly does not end here. The current trend loves ethnic foods, especially if ordered quickly and in peace, it has been revealed by a research of Just Eat, the world leader in food delivery, which has mapped the Italian boot with preferences at the table. Whether it is because you don’t want to cook or because you are with your friends or just because you don’t have the time to prepare food, more and more Italians choose to get meals directly delivered to their home. A few clicks and the order is made. What most surprises is that Italian food, known and appreciated all over the world, doesn’t appear to be among the most clicked things. Hard to believe, we are called mangiamaccheroni (pasta eaters), we are proud of our delicacies, and yet we are inverting the course and instead of a takeaway par excellence, the pizza, we are turning to other countries cookings.
