♥ Ceri makes...  has just returned from a perfect family holiday in Italia to celebrate my Granny's 85th birthday!  A week full of sightseeing,  basking in the sun and most importantly LOTS of amazing food!

For the main event  -  Granny's birthday we had a very special evening at La Corte del Lupo just a hop and a skip from my Aunty and Uncle's house.  We started with a delicious antipasti of organic salami and proscuitto farmed and cured at La Lupo.  Primi was egg free pasta with fresh tomatoes and aubergines;  Secondi was veal with a mushroom sauce cooked gently in milk;  Desert was a homemade biscuit base with chantilly style yoghurt and a raspberry compote.  Perfection!  All washed down of course with lots of birthday prosecco,  wine,  espresso and grappa!

Another foodie highlight was an evening spent at Agriturismo Sole Nascenti.  A typical Italian set up where you just turn up and are served course upon course of delicious food.  To name but a few we ate bruschetta,  salami,  melon and parma ham,  fritatta,  spinach pancakes,  tempura zucchini,  gnocchi,  truffle tagliatelle,  ravioli,  wood pigeon,  tripe,  veal,  tiramisu...!

Another delicious supper at La Corte del Lupo...  Liver with cresha and spinach,  pasta with a creamy zucchini and pancetta sauce,  salsicce all'uva and chocolate fondant.
