I have over 700 pictures to choose from, not all food of course. Here is a quick preview of all the wonderful things I saw and ate. Some edited, some not.
We got this bread on our first lunch in Postiano and we couldn't stop thinking about it. It was like a thin pizza with just salt, pepper and olive oil. It was served hot and was so delicious. I also got an arugula and parmesean salad. Simple and wonderful.
The main reason we actually went to Italy was for a Wedding for my sister's friend Emily. Here are a few pictures from the buffets. I forgot to take pictures of the 6 main courses.
This was the food line up....
- Antipasta buffet of meats, cheese, bread, calamari, shrimp, vegetables and hors d'oeuvres
- Seafood Antipasta or Smoked Cheese
- Mushroom risotto
- Fish or Beef Wellington
- Dessert buffet and cake
It just didn't stop. I think I was full after the antipasta buffet but I made sure I tried some of everything.
THE DESSERT BUFFET
The cake was huge! I think each tier was 6 inch tall. There were also several plates of several pastries and cakes - cannolis, strawberry cake, meringue and other puffed pastry, croissant type desserts.
These lemons and mushrooms were huge!! I think that lemon was the size of my nieces head. There were so many beautiful lemon trees all over the south, I guess this one got away from someone. Or maybe the tree tumbled over.
These were the best strawberries I think I have ever eaten in my life so fresh and juicy. Worth a photo!
