Food on your mind


Italy boasts a wealth of postcard-perfect coastal towns, each with its own panorama of breathtaking ocean views. With their rows of colored houses blanketing the dramatic cliff faces, the towns are easy on the eye from the sea, too.

Part of the Cinque Terre National Park (comprised of five villages) in Liguria, Manarola is reputed to be the most colorful city in the world. With its vibrant buildings jostling for space, the town that is famed for its Manarolese dialect resembles an artist’s palette. Every year, visitors flock here to hike between the five villages, with numbers soaring in peak season. I went in the off season of November. Much was closed, but I could enjoy the whole experience, with a great guide.

Not matter where you are in Italy there are great tasting foods. When in Italy, here are some of the foods enjoyed!!
In addition to being the birthplace of the Renaissance, Tuscany is central Italy’s most important wine region—and the country’s sixth largest wine-producing region. If the wine begins with a B it surely is delicious.

So here is to Italy.. Salute for food, wine and olives.. Of course I also go for the art, architecture, history, culture, rolling countryside, snowcapped mountains, opera, shopping and its friendly people!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
