I love our new couch. It's cozy and comfy, and perfect for spending hours curled up watching tv and being a silly computer geek. I'm very glad that I woke up early this Saturday morning, so I can just sit and chill. I tend to overdo it the rest of the week, so Saturday's are generally dedicated to doing nothing. So I'm all squished up into a little ball watching foodtv, and writing my friday five fave food finds of the week - although it is Saturday. 1. David Rocco. I have an obsession with Italy, so it is only natural that I have an obsession with tv shows based in Italy. And David Rocco's show is an addiction. I have been waiting for today ever since it was announced that David Rocco's lifestyle cookbook, Dolce Vita, would be in stores today. I need to get off the couch, and out to the bookstore! 2. Spain a Culinary Road Trip. You might have seen episodes of Mario Batali's latest project, Spain on the Road Again, with Mark Bittman, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Claudia Bassols. The Culinary Road Trip is the accompanying book, and it is absolutely gorgeous. Its pages inspire an instantaneous journey to Spain, or at least into the kitchen. 3. Geobeats. I am in a mood for travel; I love it. One way I try to satiate my desire for travel, is Geobeats. The videos are also helpful for travel planning; it will help you decide what to see, and what to leave out. 4. Order Hong Kong dim sum like a local. When I go to Hong Kong, it will certainly be a requirement to have dim sum this beautiful. 5. Gourmet mag's Politics of the Plate. Articles like this one make me sad, and sick. The content that is; it's well-written. More faves next week.
