LUNCH FOR A WORKING GIRL

Lunch out with Gina yesterday to celebrate the publication of some of my articles in Italy Magazine.

It's a while since I visited the Caffè Consorzio and I was pleased to find the cooking better than ever. We both ordered


fresh taglioni with cherry tomatoes and rocket,


shared a basket of good bread


and enjoyed polpette di salsiccia with salad.


A pretty fresh fruit salad for dessert, then coffee, ensured that we left contented.

"But where were all the women workers?" we wondered afterwards, as the popular eaterie had been full of men from the nearby banks and offices. "At home cooking for their husbands and children", sighed Gina.

The Italians [ops, Sicilians] just do it that little bit better.

Thanks, Lost. Much appreciated. The Sicilians ARE Italians, James. I agree they do it better! Hi, Sally. Aren't we all? Thank you, Liz. Simi sends wags to George. Vero, Gleds. And I'll fly over and be your first customer! D'accordo, WW. Hi, DD and thank you. It wasn't always that way but I put it all down to bananas, myself. Thank you, Sackerson. I do hope so!

Devonshire Dumpling said...
