Today, I would have made Nonna Peppa proud. I made Spinach pasta dough with Quail eggs, shaped it two ways, and prepared a simple sauce to go with it. Can't wait for leftovers!
Nonno ate healthy, made his own wine, raised his own chickens, and grew his own garden.
A breakfast so good, I could eat it all day long :)
Ever since the Etruscan times, then the Romans, mixing flour and water has been very popular. To these days, an ancient Etruscan stove top bread called Torta al Testo is still part of the Umbrian diet.
Why do I love squid ink so much? Whatever the reason, today I couldn't wait to come home from work and relax making some homemade pasta for dinner; a sexy looking one too!
The 2013 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris by Territorial Vineyards is a phenomenal example of what Oregon Pinot Gris can be. Pair this wine with a delicious recipe from Rosa Mariotti! Cheers!
Wine and Food compliment each other, enhance each other. Sometimes they are opposite in taste (spicy / sweet) and that is ok, too. Like marriages or friendships, is often a fine balance that makes them work. I recently started attending a wine pairing class, and met Sarah Tunnell. Yes! The Frugal Wine Gal from EDN
Remy Wines is a producer of big red italian varietals, all locally grown! The 2012 Sangiovese would be an excellent wine to pair with Timballo Di Spaghetti filled with delicious red sauce and lamb, Cheers!
Italians abroad are everywhere, seems like. Loud, stylish, insubordinate, rule-breakers-tourists.
Then, there are the travelers. Respectful, conscientious,curious and educated. I like to think I always belonged to the second category...
There is a lagoon famous all over the world that attracts millions of tourists every year. There is a city built on sand that inspired movies, books and intriguing love affairs. There is a port that made history worldwide. There are buildings that endured centuries, wars and domination. There is a unique culinary experience that accompanies it all.
