Ham and cheese


Eataly is one of those places, that for me anyway, is (almost) as near and dear to my heart as my own kitchen.  And here, in the belly of Eataly, Torino, the are the royalty of the Italian food famiglia, Parmigiano Reggiano and Prosciutto di Parma.


The heady perfume of ripening cheese and aging prosciutto was positively intoxicating and I hadn't even been to the beer hall yet.

More on Eataly to come!

Thy Daily Bread

 A treasure found while walking from the center of Bassano to the Pontevecchio (the old bridge). Located in the Piazza Liberta along with the Church of San Giovanni Battista and the Palazzo del Comune (with the ornately painted clock on the facade), this bakery (gorgeous photo here*) is one of the oldest in town.

Great bread and panini to go.
Piazza Libertà, 25
