about the Vintage Gold issue

In this issue, we will explore Italian Christmas. Italian Christmas dishes, gifts, and traditions.

I chose my favorite recipes from North to South and created an Italian Christmas menu for you.

Next, I collected 4 homemade Christmas gifts ideas that are super easy, but very cute and delicious!

You’ll also find a collection of Winter activities and DIY inspiration for the cold Winter days and a tiny guide to Orvieto, a small Italian town near Rome.

Finally, for New Year’s resolutions, I added simple healthy Italian recipes that are also good and tasty. You’ll adore them!

That’s it! Ready for an Italian Winter experience?


enjoy the journey!
