Italian Food - Kyle Phillips maintains this excellent site with constantly changing content. Highly recommended for frequent visits if Italian food is one of your joys. "My father was an Archaeologist, and I grew up dividing my time between the United States and Italy. My senior year in college he bought a house in Florence and suggested I stay for a year or two. That was 15 years ago; I'm still in Florence, where I work as a translator, food & travel writer, and photographer. My translation of Artusi, the classic Italian cookbook, was published by Random House in 1996, and I am WebWeaver of Events in Florence and Tuscany, the magazine published for Tuscany's sizable English-speaking community. I also work with WineAccess, a great Internet wine site, and edit fiction."
La Federazione Italiana Cuochi - If you don't read Italian you might better go directly to the recipe pages at this site maintained by the Italian Federation of Chefs. If you do read Italian: "La F.I.C. è eretta in Associazione con atto notarile costitutivo e Statuto dal 1978. In Italia è l'unica organizzazione che associa i cuochi professionisti. Essa ha sede a Milano in via Pergolesi, 29. Attualmente la F.I.C. annovera circa 16.000 cuochi associati. La Federazione si articola in 108 Associazioni Provinciali cuochi (corrispondenti alle Province Italiane oltre alcune importanti località riconosciute a livello provinciale) e 20 Unioni Regionali. Gli organismi della F.I.C. a livello Nazionale sono l'Assemblea, il Consiglio (68 persone), la Giunta Esecutiva (15 persone), il Presidente, il Segretario Generale."
Mangiare Bene - "The site now comprises over 2000 recipes in Italian and is one of the most visited cook sites in Italy. It is constantly updated and various columns have been added to the original project in response to requests or suggestions from readers.... in 1999 I started with the English language version. Adapted to the needs and interests of different cultures, it now comprises over 600 tested recipes with special sections, like the glossary or the Grand Tour of regional cuisine."
Order Sons of Italy in America - OSIA, through its 750 community-based chapters, 21 state chapters, two subsidiary organizations--the Sons of Italy Foundation and the Commission for Social Justice--and its National Office in Washington, D.C., works to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of Americans of Italian descent. OSIA also works with other organizations to unite all Americans in our multicultural society so that we may live in greater harmony and enjoy the benefits of the principles for which the United States was founded and for which immigrants settled in America--life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in a nation where all men and women are presumed to be created equal. Through a variety of philanthropic and social programs, OSIA represents the interests of America's 25 million Italian Americans and cooperates with U.S. and Italian officials to strengthen trade, diplomatic, cultural, and educational opportunities.
