A Taste of Tuscany

A travel blog entry by elaineandtom

We added spinach and tomato paste to some of the potato to make them green, red and white. Our second ...

Phew I'm ...

Day 12

... to the best. What was amusing to mum and I was how he could get just what he wanted, like instead of a whole bunch of celery the man ripped 3 stalks off for him.

We headed for a van selling cheese, we tasted a parmesan that was to die for, a parmesan reggiano that was lovely but not quite as fruity as the first. Then we tried some meats that were luxurious on the palate, almost creamy, one had fennel in it and ...
