Anyway, since I'm not feeling particularly verbose yet, here's some pics of my holiday in Italy at the beginning of the month. :) It was a lovely holiday, nice and warm(ish), and full of wonderful food, exceptional coffee (oh, Italy, this is why I love you so) and explorations of the beautiful towns on the shore of Lago di Garda.
Tignale, up in the mountains, which holds a truffle festival every October. Which we visited. And had pizza with truffle. And polenta with truffle. And bought actual truffles. To take home. And make pasta with truffle. Three days in a row. *oh yum*
(In sewing news, I also talked my parents into visiting a fabric outlet. I wasn't very impressed with most of the fabrics, but found some lovely stretch silk in black and petrol, and some navy&white polka dot lining. Polka dot lining! Needless to say, I bought 3 meters...)
Gasthof Hanswirt: spaghetti with deer bolognese, quark/topfen dumplings with porcini sauce, handmade ravioli with pumpkin filling... So yummy. I'm glad that we always switch up our meals when I'm eating out with my family, so I always get to try every dish. :D And honestly, if I had to pick one cuisine to eat for the rest of my life, Northern Italian would probably be my pick. :)
Do you have a favorite holiday destination? Does it have as much to do with food as mine does? What's your favorite dish from another country?
