I've been saving my photos from northern Italy as I'm not ready to relive the trip. Rather than a slideshow, I'll share a memory of a meal.
_______________________New Year's Day brunch: A lovingly and casually curated meal with elements of our multicourse dinner the night before with a few soft cheeses, fruits and always, good coffee. The beautiful chatter of Italian swarmed around me, I observed and understood every other word as I started to peel a Clementine and took it all in.
_______________________It's easier to be silent in a conversation when you're focused on peeling fruit.
_______________________This meal was the second time I met the couple, yet it all felt so easy. Maybe because I was soaking up my surroundings, the language...that soft cheese... #foodmemories#italia#brunch#eeeeeats#italy#italianfood#buonanno
