Truffles, Salumi and...a Volcano???

Bryan and I got back from Italy late last night. Jetlag aside after 24 hours of travel, it it was a truly incredible trip – we hunted truffles with hounds, took a cooking class with an Italian family, toured a salumi farm and pretty much ate (and drank!) our way through the entire country. Oh, and got stranded in Rome for an extra several days due to the Icelandic volcanic eruption. Can't forget that part. But what better place to be "stuck," so to say, than Italy?

I've barely slept and my brain can't fathom writing a longer post, but in the meantime here are a few teaser photos. I already miss the morning cappuccinos...

Our morning ritual...the perfect cappuccino.

Pizza with sliced zucchini in Rome.

Salumi plate from a pig farm near Assisi.

Our truffles! We "hunted" these with hounds in Citerna.

Crostini with salsa tartufata & salumi in Norcia.

"Dinner" with a view in Positano.

And of course, gelato!


  1. Umm..wow! That looks amazing. I love traveling, and having the food of the are where I am, and enjoying the culture at the same time. Now that is what life is all about!

  2. Hey great to have you back, missed your posts! Can't wait to see more food pics and hear about the trip.

  3. Oh Wow... that all looks absolutely to die for!!! Glad you guys had a good time. Cheers!

  4. I'm so glad to see you guys enjoying the good life in Italy. Leave it to a volcano to inspire a tour of the Amalfi Coast. Give my regards to BB.
