A Taste of Tuscany

A travel blog entry by elaineandtom


Today was our cooking day. Lesley picked us up and drove us to her house in another nearby village. She is from England , but has lived in Italy for 11 years. She had Lisenna helping, who only spoke Italian. We made 4 courses. For our antipasti we made La Ribollita, or Tuscan bean soup. Our first course was gnocchi with a cheese sauce. We added spinach and tomato paste to some of the potato to make them green, red and white. Our second ...

We ate gelato while sitting in front of marble statues and I think my new favorite flavor is Crema (I have no idea what is in it, but it was delicious) and then wandered along the streets for the rest of the afternoon. Instead of using our map, we would pick left or right and see what was on each street. On ...

... that had a boat for the week and encouraged us to meet up with them along their route. Smorgen was the destination and we all packed in a car to drive the 45 minutes to the town. We arrived to the small village and walked along the beautiful harbor nestled between the rocks lining the coast and found our friends sailbot docked. We hung out with them for several hours on the sailboat testing some of the "good" Swedish Schnapps, which I thought was awful, and some champagne ...
