Watching the news,  they are interviewing the mayor. He’s  a modest looking man in his late fifties, dressed in t-shirt and jeans,  and can hardly speak through his tears. He says “I hope people won’t forget about us.”

Earthquake in Central Italy

Amatrice is an area famous for the Amatriciana sauce served with spaghetti. The town was getting ready for it’s 50th  annual festival which would have been 27-28 August 2016  to celebrate their beloved dish.
Food blogger Paolo Campana has launched an appeal to Italian restaurants to make and donate 2 euro per plate of Pasta Alla’Amatricina. There has been some criticism with complaints that it’s an effort to take advantage of the misfortune of others, nonetheless over 700 restaurants have joined his mission!
Host a Pasta all’ Amatriciana event and raise money for the rescue and rebuilding efforts.
You can honor the people of Amatriciana  by making their beloved dish:
