Roman Holiday


Back from a much-needed week of vacation in Rome. Not a ton of wine, as that wasn't the point, but I did have a fair amount of champagne, ironically, thanks to my friend Giulio. Go figure. No matter where I am, there seems to always be champagne. Anyway, I hardly felt that I was missing anything, being surrounded by funghi porcini freschi, tartufi of the sea, gelato artigianale and all the amaro I could possibly drink. Not to mention the limoncello made by my friend Giacomo's mother....

Now to clear the holiday fog from the brain and get back to work.

Lemonchello is awesome. Ever tried to make it yourself? Pretty easy with fresh lemons.

That homemade limoncello is indeed mouthwatering.
