From Sweet to Belleatsimo
I’ve just changed the name of my “foodie” page to Belleatsimo, my play on the Italian word for beautiful, bellissimo.
A while back, Mary Bailey, one of Edmonton’s food mavens, sommeliers, author and publisher of a seasonal magazine devoted to all local things food and drink, held a competition for the magazine’s new name. Delighted with my ingenuity, I submitted BELLEATSIMO, ever hopeful it would win me, The Scientist and two lucky friends a dinner at one of our swell eateries. I didn’t win. Next thing I knew, Mary had named the paper “The Tomato.” I’m a fan Mary, but Tomato?!? I just didn’t get it. It didn’t connect with what I read in the magazine: the wine and beer and chocolate and recipes and restaurants and where to shop and what to cook with what and who’s cooking where, aaaaaannnd, seems to me, we have a heck of a time even growing tomatoes here.
Anyway, I still thought BELLEATSIMO was a cool name, so I just registered it as a domain for one of those “what if” possibilities down the road, and thought I’d debut it here.
Check it out for the Chicago finds mentioned in my recent posts.
