Being and Nothingness in Umbria

by Carolynn Carreno


The nice thing about Italy — well, one of the nice things about Italy — is that the wine costs about as much as water, and you pretty much can't go wrong. I love Umbrian whites like this Orvieto. Back in Los Angeles, I drink Orvieto just to remind me of Orvieto. The taralli (tires) crackers are from Puglia, but they sell them in my town, which just goes to show how open-minded Italians are becoming to the foods of other regions.
