I bought...

a magazine called Delicious today, and it has a great article about a town called Minori and it looks absolutely fabulous..

Minori is a town on the Amalfi Coast which is a stretch of coastline on the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula of Italy (Province of Salerno), extending from Positano in the west to Vietri sul Mare in the east. The towns lying on the Amalfi Coast are Vietri sul Mare, Cetara, Maiori, Minori, Ravello, Scala, Atrani, Amalfi, Conca dei Marini, Praiano and Positano.

Once a place where noble Romans passed the summer months, which can be seen in archeological findings from the first century, nowadays Minori is a synonym for flavor and exceptional food. Since the 16th century its natives dedicated their time to the production of pasta from wheat imported from Salerno; More recently, local agricultural producers have focused on the production of various kinds of liqueur (made of lemons, mandarins, strawberries and fennel) as well as sweets (for example delizia del limone - lemon delight) that are now known nationwide. During the fine food festival called "Gusta Minori" (Tastes of Minori), that takes place in early September, visitors can sample local specialties and attend theatrical performances based on chosen themes.
This information was taken from the website .... Locali d'Autore Srl, an Italian company specialized in the promotion of the Italian lifestyle.
The magazine also featured about A Pesto Making Competition which took place on April 19th in the historic Palazzo Ducale in Genoa.
I really must stop reading about Italy for a while, otherwise I am never going to make my mind up, about our holiday...oh the choice!!!


  1. Oh go to the Amalfi Coast, Anne! You will NOT be sorry. We stayed 5 nights at the Ancora Hotel overlooking the Med and it was spectacular. We drove to Ravello, Amalfi, and Atrani plus had a day trip to Capri. It was marvelous! The only bad thing was that I started getting sick the day before we left to spend a week in Sicily - and I suffered for the next week all the time we were there. You would LOVE the Amalfi Coast.

  2. I've always wanted to go to that area of Italy too. It's on my very long list of places to see.

  3. Anne,

    Positano and that area is absolutely breathtaking. I highly suggest a visit. Drive the coast, go a concert in Ravello. Just lay on a lounge chair and reeeelax :) Let me know if you have any questions. We loved our hotel...and it was cheap. I wrote quite a bit about Positano on the ole' blog.

  4. I have been and seen, and stolen a kiss from a man that I shouldnt have, on the windwept beach of Minori...

  5. I used to love that magazine. Come back to Sicily, Anne!

  6. Looks familiar! Please take my advice and never visit here in July or August, it is far too busy. The best time is May, June, September or October.
