As previously noted, we're off to Italy for two weeks to explore Liguria, Tuscany, and (ever so briefly) Rome. Thanks to everyone who commented or sent in their must-eat and must-see recommendations for our visit.

With camera and notebook in hand, I plan a full report upon my return, but there won't be any new postings while we are away. Taking a page from Heidi at 101 Cookbooks, I've lined up a series of "classics" from The Food Section archives to appear on auto-pilot over the next two weeks.

As this site approaches its two-year anniversary -- which will take place on July 7, in fact -- I'm also going to try something new here, a pledge break.

Have you come to enjoy this site for its feature posts on food, wine, and travel, weekly listings of food events, and daily links to stories, recipes, and other food finds from around the web? Or, perhaps you just ended up here on a google search for those cheesy Rachael Ray photos. Whatever the case may be, if you have become a regular reader of The Food Section, I ask that you consider supporting this site.
