All You Can Eat is podcasting from Italy

Don Genova, journalist, broadcaster, blogger and podcaster, has relocated from Vancouver, BC to Colorno, Italy, near Parma in order to study for a Masters of Food Culture at the University of Gastronomic Sciences. Yup, the high-profile university associated with the worldwide Slow Food movement. He'll be there for a year.

I think he has made many listeners exceedingly jealous. I can barely cut a banana into uniform slices, so I'm not one who has been bothered by dreams of spending a year in Italy at such a prestigious institution. But I can still be envious. Part of me is thinking of all the fine cuisine Don has access to, literally in his back yard. He probably has Parma ham and Parmesian cheese every single day... maybe more than once... washed down with the finest wines... it boggles the mind.

Anyway, he is producing fine podcasts to fan our envy. You can hear the latest and catch up on back numbers from his podcast page. Click around a bit to read his blog with articles and pictures that go with his podcasts.

You don't need an iPod, the programs will play on your computer, laptop or can be downloaded to your mp3 player.

Don is straightforward, knowledgeable and articulate. I'm hoping he won't add in too many more commercial sponsors, though, but he says he is trying to pay for his tuition. One can adopt the old cooking maxim, too many commercials spoil the podcast, but for now, they don't detract too much from the enjoyment and the rare experience of being able to dream I'm in Italy also.

Check it out.
