Pizza Pie

The first thing I did on arrival in Florence,Italy is head to the Mercado for pizza ! How can you resist along with all the many other wonderful things to eat… but after two weeks in Paris, Pizza was on the top of my list.

 

Fresh ingredients, wood fired, hand made dough….get in line…

Staying Thin in Italy..

Yea right! 

Here’s an idea….wear blindfolds and seal your nostrils because everywhere you go, just the window displays will add pounds to your expanding waistline. marzzipan-IMG_9588

 

But who really cares because in Florence, they have a cure…

walking, and there’s no end to that. All you have to do is look straight ahead and above all don’t duck into some of the cafes there or else, the secret taste buds you have in your eyes will be contacting your tongue and send vibrations down to your stomach that will quickly expand and cause you to do a multi marathon’s worth of walking.

Wait that brings more temptation…forget about it, just enjoy as I will soon.

What Am I Eating?!!!

I have a favorite lunch place in Florence,Italy. For just a few Euros you can get a great sandwich or pasta dish and a beer and enjoy the action of two sisters as they do a dance of serving and cooking for the local crowd. Trippa, a Florentine specialty is on order, and being one with the abitanti I placed my order….( I drank the beer before it came)

It was well made and tasty with a slight crackle and smooth interior although I had never tasted this before…  After lunch I headed out to photograph some food at the local Mercato, another high spot in Firenze when I saw the prime ingredient….

OMG! I now look at cows differently than before and no longer have the stomach for this tasty treat!

But don’t let me stop you, I don’t like tongue either…  and I will be back there for  more of the other wonderful things they make.
