Food glorious food

I hate to brag, but last night I was rather pleased with what I cooked for dinner here at Belluagello Gay Guesthouse in Umbria.

As I have previously posted it had been a miserable day, rain all day (yes it is still raining this morning too!) and I felt inspired when it came to cooking dinner last night.  We started with crostini brushed with garlic and Bellaugello olive oil.  There was a basket of home-baked Bellaugello wholemeal bread and a robust Umbrian red wine from the hills above lake Trasimeno.  For first course I cooked one of my famous quiches, this time I added gorgonzola cheese, the resultant quiche light and fluffy and decidedly cheesy.  For main course I roasted quails with sage and orange glaze, accompanied by new boiled dill potatoes, and grilled aubergines.  A very English strawberries and cream rounded off  quite a rich meal.

It was a leisurely dinner and we finally rose from the table at 11.30pm having chatted about our days, the visits we had all made and inevitably here at Bellaugello gay B&B,  gay and green issues!  Conversation flowed freely from scintillating guests.

Today I continue my enthusiasm for the kitchen and have fruit scones baking in the oven for the guys breakfasts, must dash they smell cooked!
