Tonight our Italian hosts are cooking us an authentic italian meal. We all sit and talk about our day over a vino or two before being served a glass of Chianti and antipasta, then appetizer was a bowl of spagetti (by this time I was full) then main course was a turkey rolled with pork, roasted zucchini and potatoes.
