Some Tuscan Things I've Noticed
Here are a few more photos of "Things I've Noticed..." I could not help snapping away with my camera when I was in Tuscany last week. Many things still shock and amaze me. Here are the latest:
A stuffed cinghiale (wild boar) outside a salumeria or sausage shop in Chianti. Cinghiale sausage and salami is fantastic.
This shop was jam packed with people, everyone wanted a bit of something to take home. We walked away with 2 large salami, aged pecorino cheese, guanciale (like pancetta but from the cheek area) and a large chunks of pancetta.
Look at the legs with hair and the little tail attached, I was amazed and the place smelled heavenly.
This is Billy, Enzo and Claire's pup. He is 80-90 kilos about 180-200 pounds and only still a pup. He is a maremmano, a kind of shepard and guard dog from Maremma in Toscana. He looks like a Great Pyrenese mountain dog. He's gigantic but if you say his name, then he's a lover. If not, watch out, his bark shakes the thick walls of the villa.
Good Tuscan olive oil is so green you think your putting wheat grass extract on your bread. Yummy!!
