Another one of my favorite subjects ! Food.
Italy - Rome - caprese. Fresh mozzarella, ripe tomatos, basil and balsamic vinegrette. The mozzarella is not like you get here. Delicious.
Gelato - very good but was expecting more from all I had read. Naples/Amalfi area - pizza rules. DH had one in Amalfi and said it was the best pizza he ever ate. Also had one in Naples our second trip and was also very good. Not a food - but definately give lemoncello a try. Make sure it has been in the freezer ! Most places that sell it will give you a taste. Also Proseco. A sparkling wine.
Greece - gyros - oh my they are good. Freshly sliced from the big round thing and then the yogurt sauce etc (onions, ripe tomatos) ..... yum.
Turkey - mezzas - platters with all kinds of small bowls of stuff....kind of like tapas in Spain. Also anything with lamb ! I had an amazing lamb stew in Istanbul...... the spices are the key. DH had fish fresh from the Bosphorous...... head and all
Spain - tapas. We each ordered 3 or 4 and shared.
France - crepes and coffee. We had a banana and chocolate crepe in Aix-en-Provence...... it was huge and so goooood.
Enjoy and bon Appetite !
