Some food samples – visual ones. For the actual taste you will have to take a trip to Italy!
In Mercato Centrale in “downtown” as in the historic heart of Florence. Eat your heart out St. Lawrence!
Also in the same market, wood fire pizza made while you wait. A couple of minutes only!
After walking for a couple of hours from San Gimignano and helping ourselves to some delicious grapes growing along the way…
We reach this setting…
And eat this food!
To end that delicious meal –
Another day, another hike and another fruit!!
The BEST fig ever. I don’t believe I even washed it. Never crossed my mind. Sun warmed and delicious.
Pappardelle with cinghiale (wild boar) ragu. It was delicious!
I had been dreaming of eating this dish! Linguine alle vongole! Yummy!
Pecorino cheese – made with sheep’s milk. I think this is my new favourite.
Yup, onion pizza!! Made with these onions.
Italians love to do this – a salad that reflects the colours of their flag!
Aperol spritz! Oh my! My friend and hiking buddy had one of these, and of course seeing the brilliant colour, I had to try one. Just as delicious as it looks pretty!
Same story as before.. another day, another long hike….
Food at Agririfugio Molini, a hard to reach tiny place in San Fruttuoso, Parco di Portofino. Bed & Breakfast/Hostel/Restaurant using their own home grown produce!!
THE BEST PISTACHIO GELATO EVER! No contest! In Corniglia, Cinque Terre.
And then there was this!!! In a nice, fancy but family run restaurant uphill from the town of Moneglia. Every table got one or two of these. The giant shrimp were delicious, once you got past their beady eyes.
