ITALY DIDN'T MAKE THE TOP 10!
Can you believe it?
Italy didn't rank in Fodor's top 10.
And for what?
"Worst countries in the world for vegeterians."
All that I can say is, "THANKS, Fodor" because I'm more of a "spaghetti and meat ball" kind of guy.
Don't get me wrong.
I enjoy seafood, crudo and cotto...raw and cooked.
Especially in Anzio.
the bistecca alla Fiorentina is a must,
followed by some delicious
Vin Santo and a plate of Cantuccini
You can take me to Harry's Bar in Venice anytime!
There's no better place in the world
for a Bellini, or two,
before their fegato alla veneziana.
The best pizzas I've ever eaten are in Rome
and nothing can beat linguine al astice at
Rinaldi al Quirinale.
By the way, did I mention that I do enjoy vegetable salads of all kinds.
I hope that I've wetted your appetite for an Italian food tour.
I can even include cooking classes for the different regional foods.
So, before you start to roam Rome, or all of Italy, contact me first because I've been there, I've done it, and now let me do it for you.
