But before we sampled these beautiful black jewels there were other morsels to take care of to satisfy our appetites!

Tuna tartare!

So light and so succulent! Heavens for any fish lover!

And so elegantly served!

On a bed of superb carpaccio of sole!

Beautiful octopus!

By then it was time to indulge in the truffles!

On white asparaguses!

Solio serves simply the best rizotto in the Prefecture!

Extravagant Summer Truffles risotto!

For once we skipped dessert and finished with coffee…

Actually, the home-made crostini made for a nice little dessert! LOL

  1. Oh my. Truffles = heaven! I’ll never forget the first time I bought a bottle of truffle oil. I literally put it on everything I ate for weeks…poached eggs, baguette, pasta, salad, popcorn…you name it. Now I have, ahem, more self control. 😉

    The shaved truffle over asparagus looks especially tasty.


  2. I’ve been following your blog for some time now and have seen the wide variety of foods you eat.

    I just wondered, is there anything you WOULDN’T eat on moral or taste grounds and why?


    1. My, tough question as morale varies with countries and upbringings!
      Frankly ,I’m worried about hurting feelings!
      There is at least one food I would I would never condone on moral grounds: Live monkey brains as some do in China!
      On taste grounds something too hot (spicy) would be off. And I don’t like dishes based on fermented fish or seafood.
      And I can’t stand fresh milk, cold or hot, although I love cream, butter, yoghurt and cheese! Impossible to explain this last one!
