Kitchen life in Italy: We prep lunch, we serve, we nap. We prep dinner, we serve, we sleep. We prep lunch, we serve, we...


Here I am with the owners (Livia and Paolo) of this magnificent estate. They are absolutely wonderful people. They have made me feel like their family and Livia kisses me on the cheek and neck like I am her son haha!


This is the dinner we, the staff, had before the dinner service...nothing much...just stuffed pork with mushrooms, sausage and black truffle...freshly sliced proscuitto...mixed salad...Chianina beef tortellinis with a tomato herb sauce.
Chicken breasts stuffed with Prosciutto and mushrooms wrapped in pig fat. Yum!

If that's a dinner you call "nothing much" I can only imagine the sumptuous meals you must be enjoying there! That sounds amazing to me!

You are very lucky!
Everything looks really good and looks like you are very concentrate in everything that you are doing.
Well enjoy your time there.

Hahaha, I'm trying desperately to lose weight, so - seeing as you're quite the cook - I've been staying away from your blog.

BUT - I've been unable to stay away any longer! Looks like you're working hard in Italy! Hope it's a blast!! :D

Can't wait for you to get home and cook for us.
Do you serve and clean up as well ?

i want to see what the pig fat looks like that enables it to be wrapped around something!

What exactly are you preparing? (besides the chicken) Are you drinking any good wines? Try a nice Pinot Grigio with that chicken....in my opinion Pinot Grigio brings out a better flavour than any other white wine.
