Hi! I’m PolaM, the Italian cooking in the Midwest. I am an Italian that moved to the Midwest a couple of years ago.

I am supposed to be studying most of my time as I am here for a PhD and in fact I do spend a lot of time in front of my computer or with pen and paper trying to figure out how to push science forward, but even a poor, hard working PhD has the right to eat.

And a poor, hard working, Italian PhD far far away from home has the right to whip up some food that reminds her of home.

So in this blog I am telling you about what I cook, what I do when I cannot find the ingredients I need and other random stories of pots and pans.

You can contact me at italianinthemidwest [at] gmail [dot] com.
