Well… we finally made our cheese. And believe it or not, it was really easy. A bit time-consuming, but easy. We made a very basic Farmer’s Cheese. Tasted like ricotta.
We used 1% milk and it was delicious :0) I think we will make again using a higher fat milk and maybe some flavors.
Well after our wonderful day in Amalfi and our visit to the giardini..we ventured out for the lighting of the city and our final Italian meal…until next time that is.
We were a few minutes late to the lighting because of a little impromptu happy hour compliments of Kim.
It doesn’t translate in pictures but the small town charm was warm and inviting.
Off to dinner…again an over abundance of food. Everything was delicious!!
Antipasti for the table…
A little bit of everything!!!
All the meals….
We were too full to go to the infamous gelato store (Pope had gelato there).
We did however have a wonderful time dancing in the streets and saying our “until we meet agains” to all our new friends!
Thank you for joining us on our Italian culinary flavor seeking :0)
Until our next journey!!
Off to the amalfi coast…but not before our cafe!! We have a late departure time this morning so I actually had time to have my cafe on our balcony!!!
We are so excited…we get to see the lighting of the Town Christmas tree and all the streets. Then they will have all kinds of festivities! What a wonderful thing to experience!
Ok again…very hard to decide what pictures to post. This is so incredibly beautiful!!! Here is the harbor/ferry for our trip over to Capri from Sorrento.
This region is known for it’s lemon…lemon chocolate, limoncello, lemon scented items….
Great little restaurant and very friendly chef….he let me photo his kitchen.
The pizza oven!
Here is lunch…ravioli
Grilled cod….and the amazing bread!
My favorite! Affogato! Espresso over gelato.
After lunch we went down to Capri….didn’t think it could get any prettier!!!
What a wonderful day!! So blessed!
Had a welcome dinner at the “Center Hotel” on Corso Italia in Sorrento…..
Family owned hotel. The staff is so kind and welcoming.
Our pre-appetizer appetizer… Nutella and pretzels….
We started with an appetizer…
Fennel crackers, then fried mozzarella, fried olive ans sausage, a puff pastry with ham and ricitta and another fried ricotta and nit sure. All were good.
Then moved on to canelloni. It was amazing and would have been enough to stop there!!
The main course..pork or swordfish. Both delicious!
And of course, dolci!! Chocolate cake :0) was good but could have used a splash if liquor….
Then we finished off the night with a nutella party…1extra large nutella and 9 spoons :0)
Here is our trip to Pompei….
Just amazing! Yet the same concepts as today.
A fast food restaurant….
The outer wall of the city….
Not part of Ancient pompei but modern Naples pizza oven. I am sure from the ancient people…..it made our lunch.
Pizza is slightly thicker the farther south you go. But still delicious!!!!
A bus stop…look at those grape vines!
Look at this view!!!
A local product….
A little snack at the hotel bar…..
Oh my!!! Just made this morning. Fresh mozarella from the Campagna region on our way to Pompei…..
