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!
