Last night I saw an ad that made me pause: Calabria. I’ve never seen a print ad, much less in Saveur for the forgotten toe of the boot of Italy even as it is the source of most of America’s concept of ‘Italian’ food. A couple years ago a friend and I spent time in Calabria and everywhere we went, we got the same reception: Hey! Americans! Wow!! Why are you here? But Welcome! Seriously, WELcome!! Tell your friends! Tell your family! Send more tourists! Hey, I have a cousin that lives in Chicago, do you know him?
