Ate dinner at Carlo and Roberta’s new apartment tonight, and got reprimanded for failing to write in my blog much over the past few weeks. I do have lots of interesting stories to tell, but have been telling them in person. Though I didn’t have my camera tonight, I can explain the secondo here.
They baked cod fillets with sauteed fennel and gremolata (lemon zest and bread crumbs), and served it with some thinly sliced sun dried tomato for color. For an appetizer we had zucchini and mint, served with a few shrimp, and the contorno was an insalata with pear, walnuts and goat cheese with fig. For dessert we ate a chocolate almond orange cake that Pat made. Conversation was great, food was better. What a lovely evening. Grazie a tutti!
