How to eat like an Italian

Start your day, early, at the Farmer’s Market

choose a beautiful variety of heirloom tomatoes.  Include some of your own, if you have them.  The Green Zebra, on the right, is from our deck.

After cubing your tomatoes heavily douse them in the best Balsamic you can get your hands on.  This is our current favorite.  Mellowed with 12 years of aging, and just enough bite left in it, it has won our hearts.

Now, add a turn of a smooth, buttery olive oil,

some freshly plucked basil and plenty of salt and freshly ground pepper.

Pour you up a glass of vino

and admire your artful presentation, while you can

because it won’t last long.

Delicious.

It’s all about the attitude.

Eat It and Enjoy It….  Just like the Italians.
