Tomorrow we’ll be eating anolini in brodo as our starter, that we make each year with nonna. this year @pastagrannies joined us, filming nonna (a natural in front of the camera) instructing us/ telling us off for making them too big, too small, too close together... this is speeded up for instagram purposes (sorry @vickybennison for making you sound like a chipmunk) but the episode can be watched on the pasta grannies youtube channel where you can also see how very awkward i am in front of the camera.
My contribution to last weekend’s cookbook club. we all bought a dish from @nigelslater the christmas chronicles - sweet and savoury pancakes, gnudi with butter and thyme, cheesy potatoes, artichoke fritters and this roasted pumpkin with dukkah. banana cake and pandoro for dessert. pretty good lunch all round @the.geographer @fatsxglory @qthebaker @pastalab_tuscany and @missminifer.
Nonna’s sink. postcards on the left, her plants that she’s very proud of on the ledge and her two favourite fruit - grapes (a little bowl in the same place, always) and kaki (three of them ripening on the windowsill).
