Fortior ex adversis resurgo (risorgo più forte dalle avversità)
Dalla spagnola (1918) a oggi nessun “nemico invisibile” era riuscito a fare tanto. In pochi mesi l’emergenza coronavirus ha travolto numerosi Paesi al mondo, provocando migliaia di morti e inducendo l’OMS a dichiarare lo stato di pandemia globale.
Le autrici Paola Lovisetti Scamihorn, scrittrice di food e nutrizione e Elvira Conca, giornalista d’economia, hanno descritto lo “tsunami” che ha colpito la società, l’economia e la sanità, entrando nella vita quotidiana degli italiani. Hanno raccontato il vissuto in questo momento tragico e unico della storia dell’Italia, trascorso in isolamento tra ansia, paura e stress. A salvare dalla solitudine e depressione è stato il tempo ritrovato, dedicato alla cura di se stessi e propri cari. Danza, yoga, fitness e soprattutto la ritrovata passione per la cucina casalinga hanno consentito di recuperare equilibrio, stabilità e calma. Tutti gli italiani hanno mostrato una straordinaria capacità di resilienza, made in Italy, trasformando questa esperienza terribile quanto unica in un’ occasione di crescita interiore e sviluppo di nuove opportunità economiche.
Fortior ex adversis resurgo (I rise stronger from adversity)
From the Spanish flu (1918) to today no other “invisible enemy” had managed to do so much. In a few months, the coronavirus emergency overwhelmed numerous countries around the world, causing thousands of deaths and prompting the WHO to declare a state of global pandemic.
The authors Paola Lovisetti Scamihorn, a food and nutrition writer and Elvira Conca, an economic journalist, described the “tsunami” that affected society, economy and health care, entering the daily lives of Italians. They told the story of this tragic and unique moment in the history of Italy, with the population in lockdown, experiencing anxiety, fear and stress. Citizens were able to escape from loneliness and depression by dedicating this extra time to taking care of oneself and loved ones.
Dance, yoga, fitness and above all the newfound passion for cooking at home, allowed people to recover balance, stability and calm.
All Italians have shown an extraordinary ability of resilience, made in Italy, which transformed this terrible and unique experience into an opportunity for inner growth and development of new economic opportunities.

The Mamma Mia! Diet was created by two native-born Italian professionals – a pharmacist, culinary expert (myself) and biochemist (Paola Palestini) who together present the secrets to good health, weight management and longevity – attributes of their fellow “paesano”.
The promised benefits of The Mamma Mia! Diet, include:

This engaging everyday Italian cookbook features simple recipes highlighting fresh, seasonal, local and healthy ingredients. Italian food is simple, tasty and zesty. You can whip up a mouth-watering meal with only a few ingredients, in no time, putting a delectable dinner on the table with a minimum of stress and maximum of taste. My recipes are incredibly accessible – and delicious – perfect to share with your family and friends. I selected these recipes with passion, trying to include many regional – as well as my family’s – culinary traditions.
The book is divided into four chapters (first courses, main courses, salads and side dishes, and of course, desserts) plus an appendix with some basic Italian preparations such as fresh egg pasta, orecchiette pasta or pizzoccheri pasta, tomato sauce and mascarpone cheese. All the recipes are written with both metric and imperial measurements.
Italian cooking is not only composed of ingredients, but also of people, and as such it cannot be reduced to the final act of consumption. Italian food is more than only nourishment … it is history, culture, art, health and, last but not least: Family. Nutritional information on some typical Mediterranean ingredients is also presented by Katharine McKeever, an Australian nutritionist who lives in Italy. The Sicilian recipes are accompanied by the beautiful and original art work of Adriana Glaviano, a well-known Italian artist and fashion director.
I hope you will enjoy discovering “la mia cucina italiana” as much I love to share it with you!
