    That’s saying quite a lot about a place if it served the “best” you ever had! It certainly looks like a great spot. I know what you mean about taking photos. I almost always forget to take the pics before I start eating. Then it doesn’t look so appetizing.

      I forget that, too. Would be difficult to be a food blogger.

    Is that the prosciutto he’s slicing? That looks AMAZING!!!!

      Looks yummy, doesn’t it?

    Sounds great – though I miss a map to show me where exactly I’ll find this wonderful agriturismo (without having to dig too deep down in the link:)

    Who wouldn’t fall a little in love with the mustachioed prosciutto czar?!?

    Ah, yes, Italy and food. I’d rather have Italian than French, really. All that pasta ….

      It’s a bit easier, Italian food; less formal, somehow…

    I almost always forget to take the food photos before I’ve dug in – same with the hotel rooms before I’ve made a mess.
    Lucky you – just the sound of the food you enjoyed seems devine.

      She had a good first blog trip, Alex :)

  7. I seem to forget to photograph everything too! You photos of Umbria show an amazing part of Italy and the food looks scrumptious too. I agree, the meat carver is very cute :)

      I have to make a very conscious effort to remember.

    As a fellow pasta lover, I can relate with being far too concerned with digging into the food to take a picture. But you seem to have gotten a few in! Looks and sounds like a fantastic meal. I’d love to try it some day.

    Sorry to hear the tour got canceled, but it looks like the eats more than made up for it:)

    Wow what a delightful experience you had! The pasta looks really good! I hope I was there too! :)

    Hahaha we are ALWAYS halfway through our meal before we remember to take photos of the food! Not great when you have half of it missing on your plate :)

      Doesn’t look quite the same half eaten, does it?

  13. robin 11 juni 2012 1253 #

    That looks like my kind of eating. Mouth watering piece!

      I imagine there’s lots of mouth watering eats in southern Spain, too, Robin :)

    It happens more often that you think, Alexandra. Sometimes the food is so appealing, the first thing I think about is eating! The photos you got are lovely.
