This article originally appeared in the April/May 2024 issue of Dream of Italy. If Napoli is anything, it’s irrefutably committed to playing up every Italian stereotype known to umanità. My first Italian experiences in the 2000s were very much northern and central Italy-oriented: Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, Le Marche, Umbria.

Taste Sorrento: Gnocchi alla Sorrentina (October/November 2023)

This article originally appeared in the October/November 2023 issue of Dream of Italy. Potato gnocchi date back to the Renaissance, with some research suggesting they have roots in ancient Greek cuisine.
