Italians are so puritan purist! In the end they gave up on me. I'm a heathen. I dare to consume oil made from seeds. I eat pasta less than twice a day. I drink tea as much as coffee. I have orecchiette with something other than cime di rapa. I don't have a mama's recipe for artichokes. I laugh when they call noodles Chinese spaghetti. I don't celebrate my birthday by diving into a vat of Nutella. I eat lunch in less than three hours. Obviously I cannot be saved.
