In Torino Italy — Guess that Dessert?


Post by WildSnow.com blogger | February 23, 2012      

Doing a bit of tourism around here. Local friends plying me with all sorts of sumptuous Italian victuals. This one was classic (see below), as were the ancient Roman buildings I snapped a few photos of. Check it out.

Roman remains of fort in Torino, Italy. I always enjoy the truly old stuff in Europe. It's so humbling touching your hand to something still standing that workers made more than a thousand years ago.

An Italian desert

Guess that desert -- easy for you Italiano-philes and chefs out there?

    I’m guessing that’s the Atacama Desert. Maybe the Mojave.

    “A desert is a landscape or region that receives an extremely low amount of precipitation, less than enough to support growth of most plants.”

    Dessert, the sweet course served at the end of a meal, is spelled with two s’es.
    Think “Second Serving.”

Got something to say? Please do so.
