I am truly sorry that I have not been able to post anything since early December. Was way to caught up with the holiday plans. My husband and i just returned home from our amazing holiday in Europe. I would love to share with you some of the mouthwatering food that we had during the trip. The main highlights of the trip beside the the spectacular scenery's are of course the food. We truly enjoy the foooood and eating at amazing restaurants.. I will highlight you our favourites.
We started our trip to the incredibly beautiful Cortina d'Ampezzo in Italy. We skiied for 3 days. We had amazing snowfall up to 20 cm each day. We took a break during skiing on our last day and had lunch by the ski slopes. I had "Gnocchi with tomato base" while my husband and "Gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese". We have to admit that it was the best gnocchi we ever tasted. Simple yet truly amazing.
Then we head over to Gerolstein,Germany for my first white Christmas ever with my husband's beautiful family. My mother in law prepared a simple yet delicious "Stuffed cheese tortellini with pan roasted mushrooms with onion" for Christmas eve lunch then we proceed to decorate the Christmas tree.
" Grilled crayfish and prawns"
" Spagetthi al limone"
We spend New years at Centro Ittico Raw fish restaurant located at Martiri Oscuri. Pretty far from the city but they have the best lobster i have to say.. Super fresh seafoooood.. What more can u ask..? Lemons maybe..:) I had "Grilled crayfish and prawns" and my husband had the "Linguine with Lobster" for mains.. "Tiramisu" for dessert.
We also head to Al Matarel located at Corso Garibaldi. Super classic old italian restaurant which doesn't even take credit cards.. I had "Tortellini with braised meat" for starters and for mains " Veal wrapped in cabbage rolls" which served with a tomato base sauce with some polenta on the side. My husband had "Tagliatelle with mushroom" for starter "Baked gorgonzola with polenta" for mains.
