Ultimo gelato

image

Parting is a little sweeter when you have as much gelato as we did….my last night in Milan. Granted, I’ll only be apart from Sara for 24 hours but for Italia it will be much longer. Grazie to my amazing hosts, Sara e Sante.

How can I know what good gelato is if I don’t try them all?

Today’s flavors were from Peck: pistachio, coffee, and chocolate chip. At least we shared this and didn’t get anything at Laduree across the street. Rumor has it we have to try one more tonight.

Gelato del giorno

Sara: coconut and chocolate/hazelnut
Me: coconut, creme with strawberry, and chocolate/banana

Dinner at work (aka Sara’s house) – buonissima!

Salad with tomatoes, gorgonzola, nodini di mozzarella, kidney beans, salumi, bresaola, chicken breast, and borettane onions.

No seats left on the train!

We got to the station 5 minutes before the 6:20pm train left. There was “standing room only”. We didn’t want to wait an hour for the next train so we got on. It’s a 2 hr 40 mn train ride back to Milan from Venice.

Gelato!

My 3 flavors were coffee, black sesame, and banana honey yogurt. Sara got 3 also: hazelnut, chocolate with sunflower seeds, and cinnamon. Buono!

Pasta filled with amazing-ness…

image

One was pear with saffron and parmesan, the other was gorgonzola with leeks, potato, and cream. Believe it or not, these were even better than the truffled pasta dishes.

We also had tagliolini with white truffles
