At this point, you might be “THANKSGIVING STUFFED” (aw man, now I want the holidays back… Dammit, why did I bring them up?) because I keep shoving the fact that The Food Pervert and I went to Greece and Italy last October, down your throat.
Well… It’s time to find your second stomach because… I’m about to feed you ANOTHER tidbit about our adventure!
Lamb, truffles, and black cuttlefish… OH MY!
A small sampling of what was served…
I was even given the LAST PEACH of the year from their garden… Which was made into a dessert that certainly rivaled one of Kate Middleton’s bizarre headpieces…
As you all may know, I cannot eat a lot of things, and this restaurant was advised of “such a travesty” prior to my attending the lunch, however, they didn’t know I cannot eat fruit… So, um. Yeah… Let’s just say I felt like a rotting peach pit for not being able to eat it.
Food Pervert to the rescue!
She’s got absolutely no problem saying HOW YOU DOIN’ to every food on the face of the planet… Including this peachy dessert… So she gobbled it up before anyone knew my stomach’s flak with fruit.
Thankfully we were stealthy enough with our food disappearing bewitchment… That upon leaving this feast, we were gifted the official Don Alfonso recipe book... And as a grazie for being so utterly generous to our taste buds and stomachs, The Food Pervert and I decided right then and there that we would re-create one of the recipes from the book in the kitchen… For another episode of our YouTube show: Book To Plate!
Check out our latest video to see if we would be hired as chefs in this Michelin Star restaurant…
