Chris came to the restaurant and was a witness to our process, which is asking Paola what can we do? As a school, it's not traditional at all. But, that's why I love it. Dealing with Franco, her husband, who comes into the kitchen and sneaks food, to Foxy, Maggie and Biondo, the three dogs who wonder in an out. It's surreal and fantastic. Ah the Agriturismo in action.
For lunch, I made a Gorgonzola risotto. Paola cooked up pork chops and we had my new favorite vegetable, fennel quartered, sauteed till soft with garlic and topped with parmasean cheese at the table. Soo Good! A fun day to be sure. Tomorrow, Chris gets to experience Roma!
