Summer dining, spring planting

This morning I am off to the weekly market in our local town of Gubbio, it is still artichoke and orange time, they are abundant, and so good, but I am heading by way of the consorzio, the local farmers’ store for potatoes and then straight on to the stall run by the guy from Assisi who grows and sells the most amazing young vegetable and salad plants, and so we will start planting beans, salad leaves and potatoes in our vegetable garden here at Bellaugello.

This afternoon I am spending with a fellow hotelier discussing menus and looking at new recipes.  I am so looking forward to the summer at Bellaugello Gay Country House and our dinners served at our long table on the south facing terrace
