At last the Grand Prix has left the realms of Northern Europe and heavy foods. So back into the sunshine and the endless possibilities of Italian food. As you can probably tell from my blog I am into Italian food – in a big way. I love their use of few ingredients to make combinations of bold flavours.
Rich and I were entertaining our vegetarian friends for the race which meant that the menu had to deviate slightly from anti pasti, pasta, meat and dessert formula that any decent Italian meal follows. But being vegetarians, our friends are very into their cheese (personally I don’t understand how you can eat rennet but not meat but hey-ho!). Italian cheeses are perfect for cooking and I managed to get one into each course. The vegetables that I grow in my garden are also perfectly suited to Italian cusine and our tomato crop this year has been a bumper one.
