Elegant dining

Dinner tonight at Bellaugello was a rarified affair. The terrace table handsomely decorated by Willem and Marnix, who excelled at chic styling. After cocktails served by the dashing Marc
we feasted off figs picked in the garden this morning by the guys and stuffed with Gorgonzola and wrapped in pancetta.
A primo of baccala in umido, salt cod served Eugubine style with a hint of garlic, onion, celery, tomato and potatoes, which was followed by roast free range farm chicken with grilled aubergines and rounded off with nectarines poached in lavender syrup served with apricot and nespole ice cream, a feast for the eyes and taste buds!

I think I have just learnt how to upload videos to my blog!

On our way back from dinner the other evening in our local town of Gubbio we stopped in the piazza of S Martino as the miserere was being sung. Despite the rain and our lack of wet weather gear, the host of umbrellas held by the the singers hiding underneath same, it was utterly entrancing and we just had to stop.
This was just one of the chantings in the weeks that run up to Easter
A taste of Good Friday and the “Processione di Cristo Morto” which takes place throughout the old town commencing just before sunset.
