どうもありがとうございました to all the nice, hungry friends that came to our Italian food Christmas event at Renemia on the 24th and the 25th evenings! I cooked like a robot and Satoko washed dishes like a washing machine, but our guests were happy and once more Bologna's cuisine flag - with some intrusion into Toscana, Sardegna and India - has been waving on the buffet table. 

On the 24th some friend played music and some cool singer sang Christmas songs. The cute girls of Renemia's owners held a joyful bingo and some lucky lady won a great spumante. On the 25th old and new friends had a tasty chance to meet each other. 

A big GRAZIE to the owners and to Sakura-san of Renemia for holding the event and for helping in many ways. And a big GRAZIE too to my friend Mirco for providing unique ingredients and drinks. 

Please, stay tuned: at the end of March we'll hold a cooking class at Renemia. Guest stars Mr. Prosciutto (ham) and Mrs. Mozzarella, soon a FB event page.

THANKS to all the over 100 people that yesterday came to my little event Italia Day 2016! It has been a great pleasure organizing it, even if now I’m almost dead for tireness… I tried to bring a piece of my country to Ryukyu and I’m very happy for the reception that many people – old and new friends – gave to the happening. It seems that they appreciated mostly what was in the dishes, as usual…

I want to give my GRAZIE MILLE + どうもありがとうございました to Sato-つま and to the dear amico Gino Goya for the priceless help; to Michiko-san of Yukaruhi café and to her very helpful staff for hosting the event; again to Gino Goya and to Yoco Acaghi for holding their interesting cooking classes; to Tomomi-san and to Mirco Pilat for the support; once more to Tomomi-san, and Tatsu-san and 'Roberto'-san for the translations from English to Japanese; to Francesca Cerletti (owner of the guest-house La Passione) and to John Davis (‘The Cheese Guy in Okinawa’) for bringing their yummy products: the best olive oil and the best cheese of Japan; to Tayoko Yamazaki for promoting the event on the magazine Okinawa Ichiba. And, in general, a SUPER-ARIGATOuuu to all the nice people that visited the event. Once more it has been a great moment for strengthening old friendships and start new ones.

Next (double) Pietrofood adventure: Christmas dinners at Renemia art gallery/café in Makishi on December 24th (for families with children) and 25th (adults only XXX), from 6 to 9 p.m. Dress code: HUNGRY.
