Its kind of hard not to think of food when one mentions Italy... and we sure did consume a lot of it whilst there....From the brioche, cornetti's, gelato, pizza, pasta, antipasto, cured meat, cheeses, olives, bread and biscotti it was hard to make a choice sometimes!! Fortunately (or perhaps unfortunately), our cousin owns not one but two pasticeria's and it was a morning ritual to head to his bar for a Calabrian Breakfast. Sometimes I'd get a brioche and iced coffee, other times I would get a gelato filled croissant with an espresso....One thing is for sure. It was always delicious. Here are some snaps of the amazing food that I remembered to capture, when I wasn't busy stuffing myself silly!
