Yet more food porn

And there’s more coming. This was dinner at the country home of my friends Mario and Marina.  In addition to fabulous food — more than I photographed — we got the first lesson in wine that ever made sense to me; both Mario and Marina are sommeliers, amateur but certified. The house has been in Mario’s family, as has their home in Assisi, for, literally, centuries.

Rolled meats, vegetables, and breads, skewered and roasted. Never had this dish before. Quite delish.

Plums, so sweet I’m wondering if these are the so-called sugar plums.

    The plums look like Green Gage, my favorites, and my cats would eat the lovely melon. A perfectly scrumptious summer repast.
