Italian treats from New York

Caffe Kimbo from Naples -- oh so good! I bought it at Roma's near Troy, N.Y., where Il Nostro Inviato's family lives. Our Christmas holidays in New York stood us in good stead to stock up on Italian treats.

I've definitely decided that coffee from Southern Italy is the best! Side by side, the Caffe Kimbo is so much darker than even Lavazza Oro. And I say darker=better.

Taralli. Crunchy, salty, with an olive oil essence, this is my favorite snack of all time! Think of them as Italian pretzels but so much better.

And some camomille tea. I bought the taralli and the tea at Chelsea Market in New York City.

Buon anno and buon appetito!
