When traveller-in-crime and I went to Italy – Rome and Venice – I was DETERMINED to eat authentic, made-on-the-spot Italian food. And I did :o)
Apart from the pizza. It was mass-produced and frozen. Said so on the box that we took back to the hotel room for a midnight snack.
The BEST meal I had was a Carbonara. On the street. From a restaurant less than 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
I always use tagliatelle. Dunno why. And bacon……..we don’t have an Italian butcher close by. And parmigiano reggiano. From Tesco.
MY kids love it too. Good job. We have it for tea tonight :o)
Did I just drool again?
