  1. Every photo is rich and delicious -- even the ones that aren't food.

  2. When I was a kid we used to take ripe persimmons, hollow out a hole and insert a firecracker. Then you'd light the firecracker and throw it. Lots of goo when it blew up.

  3. I agree with Paulita and I love your captures for the day, Merisi! Delicious indeed!

  4. coffee is always better in Italy! Well, better than LA. :)
    Lovely photos! (As always) I am heading to Italy at the end of November! I can't wait!
    No tuscany but Rome, Umbria (Assisi) and Genova. One of these days I need to get to Vienna though. You have inspired me!

  5. I dream of Tuscany too but have only ever encountered it in the many films made there.

  6. The strawberry tartlet looks delicious!
