Having a break…
Il Paladino almost next door…
And I was there before I could say “it’s still raing cats and dogs outside!”.
“A plate of antipasti misto and make it small as I have to eat dinner back home!”
Madago/octopus and Uikyou/Japanese fennel salad, Fritatta of zucchini and eggs, Broccoli AOP Peperocino with anchovy seasoning, and marinated tomato. And home-made focaccia and bread!
“You know, we have these big white asaparaguses from Holland…”
“Not fair! OK, I’ll have one of them!”
For another view.
The asparagus is simply grilled and served with a delicious dressing.
The new bamboo shoot is fried. It is actually the extremity of the shoot called “himekawa/姫皮/Princess’ skin”. The inside is almost fruity and part of the “leaves” are edible and crunchy! A great asociation of European and Asian vegetables!
Now, how was I going to explain that to the MIssus….
