Bam’s Kitchen is Going To Italy

Bam's Kitchen is Going To Italy


Mama Mia!  Bam's Kitchen is going live on location to Italy!

My travel itinerary plan is to eat my way through Italy. I better bring my stretch pants as I have a lot of territory to cover in Tuscany.

I plan to do a great deal of culinary exploration while visiting Florence, Siena, and San Gimignano and even participate is some Italian cooking classes during my journey. I cannot wait to share all of my experiences with you. I will even be stopping off in Paris to dine...

Thanks in advance for understanding that I will be out of the cyberworld for just a while during my trip, but I promise to return with lots of new Italian cuisines, dishes and culinary gusto. I am also looking forward to catching up with everyone's new posts upon my return.

    🙂 Mandy

    • Thanks Mandy. I am sure I will be taking just a few pictures….

  • Yay have a great time! Drink lots of limoncello for me 😉

    • Ahh yes Limoncello! What a great spring drink. Thanks and take care, BAM

    Enjoy your trip to Bella Italia!!! Ciao, ciao!!! 🙂

  • We ate at the most amazing restaurant in Sienna! Have fun in Italy 🙂

    • Do you remember the name of the restaurant in Siena? Take Care, BAM

      • It was Ristorante Imaestri and just outside the walls of the old city. We stayed at the Hotel il Palio in the old City. Most hotels run specials which they put out front after 17h00 if they are not full and this one was a bargain. We went to Florence for our honeymoon and loved it so much we went back in 2010. Not that I have to tell you, but do make sure you go to the Uffizzi Gallery. Most of all, enjoy and take in as many markets as you can 🙂

    • Thanks for your suggestions Tandy. I just finished off 1/2 a bottle of Vendemmia 2003 Riserva and now thinking abbout what we are going to have for dinner…Wild Boar? Tuscan Bread soup? Risotto? Pasta? Maybe one of each….

  • Do you smell that? It is jealousy, pure and simple, not gentle envy or anything woossy like that,, it is jealousy, i want to go too (whiny voice!).. love love c

    • Jen from Zesty Bean Dog already got first dibs on sneaking in my luggage but there is plenty of room as your tiny… Meet me in the airport in an hour… Take Care, BAM

  • Take me with yooooouuuuu!!!

    • I will do something better I will bring a taste of Italy back for you. Take Care, BAM

  • Have so much fun!!! And come back with lots of pictures of everything you tasted 🙂

    • I am sure I will taking just a FEW pictures. Take Care, BAM

  • Enjoy yourself Bam!! I’m excited to read your posts of Europe! I just went to Milan too and it was awesome!! Have fun!!

    • Thanks Sammie! I am so looking forward to catching up with you upon my return. How was Milan?

      • Milan was fabulous!! I had so much fun!! But please make sure you watch your bags when you’re in Italy! I’ve heard tales of pickpocketing schemes, so do be careful! My friend in Europe told me that she had a friend who got pickpocketed by a little girl! The girl simply slipped her hand into his pocket, but good thing he noticed it and he grabbed her by her arm. In turn she just smiled at him and walked away…! I also purposely brought a deeper bag so that it would be harder to pickpocket and I’d less likely be targeted. 😀

    • Dear Sammie, I am gald to hear about your travels and dissapointed to hear about the pickpocketing but Florence is just like any large city. So far my favorite place on this visit was Radda in Chianti a complete opposite of Florence so relaxing with rolling hills and vineyards and so quite you could only hear the bird chirps.

  • Well, hurry and get there — and back. Can’t wait to hear all about it. Will you be eating out the whole time — with the boys? OMG, if so, maybe I and all your fans can each send a dollar or two to get you out of debt! Have a wonderful time, BAM. Keep writing (take notes anyways)…

    • Kathleen you are so funny and supportive! The best part of this trip is that I will be traveling alone with “Mr. Anonymous” to Italy. My hungry teenage boys will be going to school and working. You should see how well I have stocked the fridge, freezer and pantry. It is overflowing. So that will last them for at least one day…. If anyone hears about any wild and crazy partys in Bam’s Kitchen while I am gone please send me a note.

  • I hope you have the most amazing time, Bam!!!

  • Have a Great Time Eating Your Way Through Italy (slightly jealous here)!!! Happy Thursday!

    • I have packed my eating pants and camera, so I am ready to go. Thanks and take care, BAM

  • Have a great trip. Looking forward to lots of stories about your food adventures when you return!

    • Thanks and looking forward to catching up upon my return.

  • Wait!!!! Can I sneak in your suitcase???? 🙂 Have fun!

  • Have a wonderful, safe and tasty trip!

  • Ciao BAM! Have a delicious time in Italy and France! Looking forward to reading about your adventures!

  • Have a great trip, I am so jealous!!! Eat lots!!

  • I know you will have a wonderful trip. I can’t wait to hear all about it and the dishes that will be inspired by your time in Italy.

  • Oh how wonderful Bam, hope you have a wonderful and safe trip, eat lots of yummy Italian food for me!

  • Buon viaggio!

  • Bon Voyage, Bam 🙂

    You are SO lucky! Can you stuff me somewhere in your luggage? Italy and France are my dream destinations, then the UK, the all of Scandinavia..well..all of Europe! I can’t wait to live vicariously through you when you blog about it and post pics! Have a safe trip over there, my dear!

    • Wow, Scandinavia that would be quite a destination. I have plenty of room on my carry on bags as I always travel light next time you can come too.

    Just heard about the hard earthquakes in the region you will travel to…hope you are allright. Greetings from Germany, Lili

    • Thank you for your well wishes but we were far south of the epi center. I hope that the people that were evacuated can soon return and rebuild.

  • Ahhhh! That’s so exciting, Bam. I’m so excited for you and a little bit jealous, too! Have a great time!
