Every spring and summer, I am reminded of Italian scents, flavors and vistas that bring my senses back to life after a long Minnesota winter. I dream of a fresh caprese salad, parmigiana di melanzane and zuppa di cozze while sitting seaside sipping a great glass of wine. Pictures of colorful bougainvillea fill my mind, and the feeling of a fresh sea breeze caressing my skin are beautiful memories that bring joy to my soul. I look forward to the time when I am once again moving through those narrow staircases filled with colors and views of the sea, to taste the flavors that come alive in Positano and to let my mind wander, relax and dream. Mi manchi tantissimo Positano.
