When I started blogging I was thinking mostly about recipes...and then, of course, gardening and foraging to source my ingredients, and then, of course, travels, and all the exciting food in the world, and Slow Food, and the environment, and then, of course again, books, but not only cook books, as I am into many other types of books...and then ...and then...in the end my blog has become a patchwork of many different topics. I don't mean that this is necessarily a bad thing, but I had a moment of thought for those readers who are only looking for recipes, and may not be interested in my personal thoughts about living in the bush or visiting a cathedral in Europe. Of course it is great to give recipes a context: a soup for a book launch, a dinner after a festival, a thought for a personal friend...all of this can still continue here, but for those who have less time to go through the archives, or speak English as a second language (and at present are forced to 'navigate' through several non-related topics before finding the beginning of a recipe), or simply need to differentiate between vegan and vegetarian, I have created a new reference space: 'only recipes'
This current blog is not closing down, and although it has become more of a diary than I intended it to be in the first place, I do hope that it would still prove interesting for some of you :-)! And yes, I will continue to put here all my recipes (and news about food and products, restaurants and shops, travels and books, and more!), but if you are only and exclusively looking for recipes please go here.
I have started by uploading old recipes from this blog, and I will continue with updating the
'only recipes' space with new entries on a regular basis. Hopefully only recipes will be easy to consult, but since it is going to be only a reference space, rather than a blog, I will be most grateful if you could still post here, on Alessandra Zecchini blog, and in the latest topic (where I am sure to see them) all your comments or questions (at least for now...in the future I may find the time to open comments there, as well as in here).
I hope that only recipes will be useful to you, and I thank you for your comments :-)
