Cinerea Gum Plate
I just opened a new store online at Etsy, as my previous store at big cartel did not get many hits, so I will see how Etsy goes. I hope to take some new photos of my work to put on there next week.
Sorry to anyone who follows me, but these are really just what I have been doing for the last week on my holidays, and I am really putting them up for my parents to see! But enjoy if you like holiday snaps..
This year has been our first year where we have had a bumper crop of eggplants. Must have something to do with the warmer weather! So I have had eggplant in nearly every dish lately, but the one I wanted more than anything was Melanzane Sotto Olio that I ate in Napoli while staying there in 1996-97. My travelling companion’s Zia, gave it to us regularly for lunch with chewy Naples bread – delicious. So I contacted my friend and he found out the recipe. I hope it tastes as good as his Zia’s. When we were leaving Napoli to fly home to Australia, she gave us two bottles, and said take them home, its ok!! But we knew we couldn’t take them on the plane so had to reluctantly give them away to the pension owner that we were staying with in Rome. Photo is a bit blurry…
