Italian feast...

Food is a big part of the Italian way of life, Italians take pleasure in creating feasts for the senses from simple ingredients. Eating in Italy is never rushed & is a huge social occasion. I love Italian food!
The choice of Trattorias near my hotel was considerable. 2 became favourites during my stay. The food was delicious, service exceptional, and was made to feel very welcome, ( not always the case when dining singularly) no pressure to hurry. From pizza to pasta nothing was a disappointment. The tiramisu was divine!... well you have to try these things !!1

Italians aren't big on cakes, but they do love a meringue and gellato (ice cream)... absolutely delicious...



Around the corner from hotel was a supermarket, as you all know I do love a local supermarket! Great for stocking up fridge in hotel room!.. and bringing home local goodies.
Treats bought home were these:

for the sweet cupboard!;Tiramisu chocolate, mini amaretto meringues, sprinkles, limone sorbet, limoncello,
for the savoury cupboard; lemon linguine, risotto packets, truffle oil, pink sea salt, rainbow ribbon pasta,... check back soon for experimental dishes!
