Near Deruta, Launching Your Life in Italy
Well, Mike and Celinda, you’ve now made the leap: the decision to live in Italy – and over the next few weeks, you’ll be deciding WHERE to set down those Italian roots.
How good to connect with you again and talk over your options – and and over a rural feast with dear Giuseppa, farm woman friend living near Deruta.
Her buonissimo rural cooking and warm and loving welcome certainly reinforced your decision to live in Italy, vero?
……and today, Pino, too, savored that Giuseppa goodness:
After that pasta squisita, time for roasted rabbit and squab (all meats raised by Giuseppa and Paolo, logicamente!):
Celinda, know you loved Giuseppa’s zuppa inglese. To learn to make it? Come back again and cook with her!
Before leaving, a stop in the garden for fennel and salad that we could take home:
And at the garden entrance, the pepper tree from North Africa fascinated us all – and Pino wonders if he can start one from a grafting…..
No visit to Giuseppa and Paolo’s can end without a visit to see their prosciutti, family pride-and-joy:
Mike and Celinda, once you set down your Italian roots, come back to see us in Umbria – and we’ll head to Giuseppa and Paolo’s. She’ll be eager to have you again – and Paolo might be home next time. And not out hunting wild boar.
..and Mike, thanks for your note on our day:
“Tagliatelle with wild boar, grilled rabbit, grilled dove, homemade wine, fresh produce, homemade walnut liqueur, zuppa inglese for dessert: all ingredients grown or raised within 300 feet of our dining table! So when Italians talk about “farm-to-table,” they are serious…! Wonderful day with Anne, Pino, and Giuseppa in Deruta….”
