Giuseppa Means “Joy” in Any Language
Another wondrous day in Perugia..and then on to Deruta for lunch with farm friend, Giuseppa.
Mark and Susan from Hong Kong remained captivated today by Giuseppa..and her cooking.
Can’t you feel our good times in the photos below?
Ah, what grilled meats we’ll have!
“…..and these pork ribs are from our pigs”
Antipasto of homemade cheesebread and homemade capocollo
“Homemade tagliatelle coming up – and meat sauce from our calves!”
La pasta buonissima
Mark and Susan ready for the roast pork
For dessert, Giuseppa’s cake with the family’s vin santo
“Salute, Giuseppa, carissima amica mia!”
“Salute!” to us all
Giuseppa shows us how to dip the cake in the vin santo
Afterwards, into the garden for fennel
Giuseppa gives me fennel and arugula to take home
Checking out the prosciutti
… and here are the grapes for vin santo
“Arrivederici, Giuseppa……until the next time…”
