If I get the chance to go to Europe, Italy would be the first country that I will visit. The arts and culture of this boot-shaped nation never cease to amaze me. And of course, the places that I want to see are the Canals of Venice, the Colosseum, the Pompeii and the Leaning Tower of Pisa, among others.
Italy, by the way, is famous around the world not only for their UNESCO Heritage sites, the visual arts of Leonardo da Vinci and Michaelangelo, the music of Luciano Pavarotti, the fashion trends in Milan, but also for their food. And when I think about Italian food, the first four things that come to my mind are pizza, pasta, gelato and espresso, but of course, the assortment is wider and more diverse than what our stomach can fathom.
Last Wednesday, August 13, I was fortunate to have a taste of Italy. I may not be able to go to Italy for the distant future but at least I was able to taste the country via Finestra’s “Chef’s Table.”
