My absent note this time is that besides being super busy with seeing everyone and doing lots of 'last minute' social stuff in Milan last week, I have also been to the sea! Liguria to be precise, a gorgeous region on the upper west coast of the boot of Italy. A region only 3 little hours of driving away from Milan and one that I hadn't visited yet. Good thing I went because it is really breathetaking!
Have a look for yourself....
Obviously, I wasn't going to let you hanging with pics from scenery only!
I wouldn't be me, if I hadn't enjoyed some local yummyness. To start off the dinner, we had an aperitivo with some local cheeses and salumi accompagnied with a good Liguria Vermentino white wine.
Enjoying this looking over the sea with a salty wind in your hair is pure pleasure!
After that I had a spaghetti al vongole and a grilled Orata afterwards. I think my seafood levels are up to date now ;) Although I could have seafood every single day! Yummmmmm!!!
Talking of which... my lunch of today is a tasty tuna salad sandwich! Keep tuned for the recipe... (I do like to keep the tension and expectations high, don't I? ;) )
How was your weekend??? In particular, your culinary weekend??
PS: I might be absent for some more as I will be super duper busy the coming couple of weeks but I will try my best to keep up the recipe posting. If not, please fellow cookingclub mates, help me out here?!
