BounGiorno Cara Maria,
I grew up 6 months a year in NY and 6 months in Tuscany and Sicilia (Isla Della La Feminna) and have many relatives in Rome, one of my favorite cities. I'm doing a Culinary Tour of Rome in October with several Chefs and would love for you to Tag along and guide us around. Please send me a note and let me know if this is possible...Grazia Mille,
Bon Appetito,
Chef Joe DiMaggio, Jr.

A dinner in Rome

Elegance and style for my dinner in a top Rome restaurant near Piazza Navona: Convivio. Angelo Troiani’s modern versions of the typical Roman cuisine offers dishes brimming with personality, like the bay leaf scented roasted pigeon with tangerine sauce and the tasty embrace between crustaceans and pork tripe in home made tagliatelle with Roman pecorino cheese and mint.

Hi Cara!

Cara Maria Luisa-
It's a shame that not a single Italian Restaurant is in the Top 10,...What's worse is that S. Pelligrino is an Italian Company...I have been to a few of the Top ten restaurants and I'm sorry they are not that good in fact I found them mediocre at best. I have found that Food Critics for the most part undervalue our Italian culinary traditions. However, public polls in the US even among gourmet/foodies have always put Italian Food as their favorite cuisine. Every year a poll conducted by the Wine Spectator magazine always lists the readers favorite cuisine as Italian...Thats why I don't understand the disconnect with Food critics.

Well next time you find yourself in San Francisco you can come and try Ravioli di Foie Gras con Tartufo Bianco
that I make

Michelin stars aren't very important here....They haven't reviewed many cities...And the restaurants they reviewed in New York for example...there ratings were completely inconsistent/flawed to the point that most restaurants don't take them seriously...If you are French you automatically got Stars if you are Italian you didn't....I think they are still bitter about the world cup loss

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
