April in Italy: Artichoke Omelet for Bella Figura

April in Italy: Artichoke Omelet for Bella Figura

Kamin Mohammadi, a magazine editor in London, should have been on top of the world. But after heartbreak and loneliness, the stress of her “dream life” was ruining her physical and mental health. When a friend offered the gift of an apartment in Florence, Kamin took the leap and didn’t look back.

It did not take her long to notice how differently her new Italian neighbors approached life: enjoying themselves, taking their time to eat and drink, going about their lives at a deliberately slower pace. Filled with wonderful characters—from the local bartender/barista who becomes her love adviser, to the plumbers who fix her heating and teach her to make pasta al pomodoro—Bella Figura is a mantra for savoring the beauty and color of every day, a guide to the slow life for busy people, a story of finding love (and self-love) in unlikely places, and an evocative account of living a better life, the Italian way!
