Italy Foodie Report
The other day I have seen a great video over at Acorn in My Kitchen’s blog, about Italy, one of my all time favorite countries (you would never guess, I know 🙂 ) and it made me think about my top-10 favorite things in Italy. Here they come, without any specific order, with a couple of pics from our latest trip to this magnificent country:
Cold cuts! Mortadella and Prosciutto di Parma – mmmm…. just layer them with a few slices of tomato in a piadina, and you are done!
Mozzarella (and other wonderful cheeses) – get the real deal. There are some really bad versions of this amazing soft cheese ball.
Olive Oil – needs explaining?
Cakes and Cookies – if you have ever been to an Italian supermarket, you’ll know what I mean. Hundreds of boxes of different cakes and cookies (for breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon snack, tea/coffee, anything)
Ice cream – please once in your lifetime, go to Sirmione of the lake Garda and check out the ice cream stands. You won’t regret it!
Garda Lake – this is definitely on the very top of the list.
People – how can you not love the way they drive and shout at each other? Or the F1 “tifosi”? Or the smile of the Italian grannies? 🙂
Pasta and pizza – because there are about a million types and they are all sooo good.
Lambrusco – the famous Italian vine, a glass a day probably makes you live a 100 years.
and of course those Italian Grapes!!!!
