  • Jessica Comingore told us about the Memphis Group, the Italian designers responsible for the whimsical interiors you’ve been seeing everywhere.
  • We reminded you of the best way to reheat pizza at home.
  • Meanwhile, our software engineer, Micki, offered her take on Ken Forkish’s The Elements of Pizza.
  • And our partnerships editor, Samantha, shared a few memories of a Florence wine bar that made her feel right at home in Italy.

  • Our lives got a whole lot better when Zoe Paknad told us how to make a pizza dough you really can’t mess up.
  • We also learned that with a little practice, even carbonara is possible without a recipe.
  • Leslie Stephens told us about a traditional Venetian cookie that she grew to love thousands of miles away from the ancient Italian city, in Guatemala.
  • And we all tried our hands at swirling wine—because it turns out there’s more to it than looking cool (or pretentious).
