My new life in Italy

Michele Connors left a hectic fast paced life in the restaurant world in New York City for the hills of Tuscany in 2007. After a year in Montalcino, she moved to Florence where she met her future husband Emanuele and has worked in tourism while getting certified as a sommelier by Associazione Italiana Sommelier. She is passionate about Italian food, wine and travel. 2011 will be a busy year for Michele as she is getting married near Emanuele’s home town in Calabria (the sole of Italy’s boot) and hoping to fit in lots of good eats, Italian wine and new cities in the meantime.

Stay tuned for Michele’s blog posts sharing her experiences about eating her way through Italy, life abroad, getting married in the south, and enjoying una dolce vita.
