Last week I was looking for a recipe for White Peaches Soaked in Wine as a desert for Sunday's pranzo (lunch) and came across Bleeding Espresso. No its not an Italian punk rock group - though that would be a great name for one - its the work of Michelle Fabio , an American who retraced her Calabrase roots and now lives in her ancestral town.
I found her recipe - how easy can it be: peel and slice peaches, soak in wine for as long as you like, eat peaches, drink wine - punto! Because of a misunderstanding between myself and the greengrocer I ended up with yellow not white peaches. But I found out yellow peaches soaked in prosseco, though not authentic, work just fine.
Michelle and a group of other bloggers started working on a list: You Know You're in Italy When ... The list keeps growing as people add their comments -and as Laurent and I read them we've found ourselves nodding in recognition.
I threw in a couple and want to add one more.
You Know You're in Italy When:
This is what you see first thing in the morning when you look out your bedroom window.
