We began our journey in Rome.
Danny and Lucy and I have been lucky enough to visit Italy three times in the last 16 months, thanks to Carla and the good folks at Jovial Foods asking us to lead their culinary getaways. We adore our time in the villa in the hills outside of Lucca. (I’m writing at the large wooden table that sits in its kitchen right now.)
But the last two times we have taught there, we have all dragged through the first days, thanks to pernicious jet lag exhaustion. This year, we decided to walk half-awake through Rome for a couple of days instead, arriving at the villa refreshed this time.
This kind of food helps with jet lag.
