Photo of the week: Il Leopoldino

Il Leopoldino Agriturismo.

A few years back we spent our summer in Italy, where we stayed at a place called an agriturismo. Our hosts owned an olive plantation and they were having guests on the side. It was a wonderful place and I will write more about it in another story. For now it suffices to say that we felt very welcome and part of a real Italian family.

On the last night of our stay our hostess, who is an amazing cook, prepared us some regional food. At our request we started early, around 7.30 pm. It was delicious. They had invited some friends over and their children and our daughter were around too. It was one cheerful meal. When the children became tired, they just went to the couch to lie down. The wine they served with the food was excellent and when desert came we took this photo of it. It was some kind of savory pie, with walnuts and rosemary on top. A real regional delicacy!
