Surviving the downturn (Tip No. 19)

In today's Il Sole 24, Italy's top financial daily, Davide Paolini writes that the financial crisis could likely result in an improvement in the quality of food we eat, bringing about a resurgence of cibi poveri ("poor food") to the typical Italian home. Traditional foods like Baccala' (cod), sardines and pasta fatta in casa (pasta made-at-home) will return to Italian homes, a nice consequence of an otherwise paralyzing economic crisis.

Cue our first attempt to make pasta at home. A big success!, I write before tasting.
