Eating your heart out

Stepping onto the scales this week at the doctor (“You’ve gained two pounds, Mr. Cevola”) caused me to pause and look back at some of the great meals I had on this last Italian wine trail work/adventure. From Emilia Romagna to Marche to Abruzzo, Apulia, Basilicata, Sicily, Tuscany and Rome, what a trip it was. Here’s a little eye candy, sans traffic cones. Food, beautiful food.

Wines for another time. Sailing pix in the Mediterranean too. I reckon if one's gonna gloat, one's gotta flaunt the yacht shots, eh?

Ribollita it is. I think the fish was Ricciola

Beautiful linens and china...a flashback to the era of graciousness, when food and presentation mean love.

I gained 5 lbs. just looking at your photos. The caponata, the frittata!

My God, those shots are incredible!

Alfonso:

The shot of the beans should be hanging in a gallery!

Yes, terrific photos, Alfonso.

The only thing I have to say is: you gained only 2 pounds! You are a lightweight.

Three weeks in France four years ago and I still haven't lost the 15 pounds it gave me.

Alfonso Cevola said...

Thanks all! I really loved making the shots and eating the food too!
