Imported Italian Gourmet Pasta

Ah, Italian pasta - it is the staple of an entire nation. Now it has spread to the rest of the world, a fact for which we are grateful. Do you remember the way your great-grandmother made her pasta? Neither do I, since we aren't Italian. Some of my friends, though, are lucky enough to have an Italian grandmother...and dinners at their house? Everyone clamors for an invitation.

Book Review of the Week: Among the Cannibals

One of the most compelling books I have ever read is a new book by Paul Raffaele, entitled Among the Cannibals: Adventures on the Trail of Man's Darkest Ritual. Stunning in its' cultural complexity, Raffaele digs deep into five very different cultures and explores the meanings of one of mankind's most unsettling taboos.

European History and Culture: Learn the Classics from The Owl

"If you seek far more knowledge, background, and content than the travel guides in your local bookstores can ever provide, or if you have ever come away from a tour feeling frustrated by yet another dry recitation of facts and figures--The Owl is for you!"
