|First wine of the trip: Corte Rugolin 2012 Valpolicella Classico:|
plenty of cherry and sour cherry with a nice cranberry backing
|Our "welcome from the kitchen": Bean Soup - sound much better in Italian|
|Bigoli with duck sauce|
|I ended up wearing some shaved cheese (not my fault),|
the up-side is they are some of the best smelling clothes I have.
|Risotto with radicchio and Monte Veronese|
(my first but I can bet not my last plate of Risotto this trip)
|The cheese plate ... I never thought I'd say this but,|
there is such a thing as "too much cheese"
|Dessert: Bonet amaretto with candied orange ...|
Another thing I never thought I'd hear myself say (about chocolate):
this was not a favourite, you just have to like Amaretto.
On the other hand the shortbread top was amazing.
