4 reading suggestions for the summer

Summer is the best season for reading, the perfect time to dedicate a little time to great stories, those that allow us to travel far – in time and in space – while remaining physically in the here and now.

The long days allow us to enjoy so much light. Under the beach umbrella, in the yard, in the hammock on the terrace, in the park, in the mountains: we have much more time to devote to pleasant and relaxing activities, such as reading. In fact, nothing can beat lying in the shade, letting yourself be caressed by a light breeze and immersing yourself in a book.

The novel

Fried Green Tomatoes
Alabama, the Twenties. Four women, many stories, a love story that was revolutionary for that time, a refuge – the kitchen of the Whistle Stop Café – a recipe, that of fried green tomatoes, originally from the American south, which becomes a tasty catalyst for events, stories, people. A simple yet delicious recipe that will make even the readers exclaim: “You will think you died and went to heaven!”

The cookbook

Tomato day. The ritual of canning tomatoes.
If there is one thing able to rekindle the connection with memory and nature, it is certainly the preparation of canned tomatoes. A genuine ritual, a homemade tradition with ancient roots, handed down from generation to generation according to recipes and particular methods that are always different. An event that takes us back to the past as a moment of reunion of the whole family - but that also teaches us a lot about the future, such as the recycling of containers, and above all, making the most of a seasonal product throughout the year.
The day of the bottles opens the mystical power of the ritual of canning, capable of conserving much more than tomato sauce.
