Florence: Day 66

After spending the morning at the Central Market of San Lorenzo, we took Joe and Leah to one of our favorite lunch spots, La Prosciutteria. It was fun to order a board for four people for lunch. They brought a short board of crostini topped with an olive tapenade, veggie pate and a truffle cream. The long board with meats, cheeses, vegetables and fruit was absolutely stunning! It is the perfect way to enjoy a casual lunch while catching up with friends.



We had Joe and Leah over for dinner and I foolishly didn’t take any pictures of what I made. We started with crostini with ‘nduja, the spicy sausage spread from Calabria that we had first tried at a wine bar. I found a jar of ‘nduja at a local market. This version was far spicier than what Joe and I had tried before, but it was great. I then served fresh tagliatelle from the market with a homemade bolognese sauce. For dessert we had a couple small cookies from a local baker with limoncello on the balcony. Catching up with old friends in a setting like this is absolutely priceless!
