PUTTIN' ON THE RITZ

Last night I had supper in the company of an 86-year-old man: He entered the garden where we were seated and, in a move worthy of Fred Astaire, threw his walking stick onto the bamboo, sat down and proceeded to regale us with tales of old Modica. This gentleman has more energy than I do!



And how about this for an incongruous, yet delicious combination? Peach granita served with melt-in-the-mouth, crumbly Scottish shortbread [and served on a traditional pasta-making tray]. Viva fusion cooking!

How the other half live! What a fun photo too of the stick in the bamboo.

Hi, Mopsa. Glad you like the photo. Hi, James. And it's even taller than when you were here! Hi, Trubes. Pleased that you like it. Have you ever had granita, Liz? It's so refreshing.

And I suspect you're just the person to understand and value those anecdotes of bygone days. Gorgeous grub, too - now there, I can help you ;-)! Bisous, Px
