My trip to Italy 7, Orvieto....the food

You cannot talk about Italy, without talking about the food. Mary and me, we started each day, rather early (7.30am) with a cappuccino at Pastericceria Scaponi.

This picture was made on thursday, marketday, we bought delicious food for the picnic in the courtyard.

I talked with this farmer about one of his vegetables, he told me the name but I cannot remember .I bought his tomatoes, and carrots;

He also had the zucchinis and their flowers.

We visited a vineyard, in the surroundings of Orvieto. Delicious wine, beautiful views an d a nice vineyard-owner. 

   On wednesday we had a cooking class, so much fun!!!

Janet and me worked very concentrated....

Together we made: parmiginana di melanzane , panna cotta and rotolini di zucchini e ricotta.
These rotolini were delicous!!!!

Our last groupdinner on friday gives us lots of wonderful memories. The food was 'divine' as they say in France, I heard you Americans say 'to die for'.
One of the starters, there were four different starters...., was cheese with truffles. I had never eaten truffles, they are rather expensive here , but Orvieto has summer and autumn truffles, black and white.

This is my last 'Trip to Italy' post, thanks for joining me . I hope to return in May 2012. If you want some recipes, I have some typical of Orvieto, you can send me an email.
P.S some pictures I used are made by Janet, Bill and Mary, thanks.

  1. Oh! I want to be in Italy so bad!!!!! Truffles are my favorite and those zucchini flowers are so hard to grow and find in such a large quantity. I would have bought them all and made fried zucchini flowers or stuff them. That meal looks so great. (the farmer was cute too!)

  2. Het ziet er allemaal heel gezellig uit, vooral het eten mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, ik ben benieuwd naar je project. Groetjes Dorien

  3. What an amazing time you had! I love the marketplace pictures you took, the flowers on the courgettes are really gorgeous!

  4. I love all you posts. It is a trip i will treasure too. I hope we all keep in contact and I can't wait to return in 2012. Well done on finishing your quilt. I love it. Please send me a picture.
