I am just back in India from a trip to Milano, Roma, Firenze and Venezia. Your blog was an import ingredient in my research! I read the entire archives for my research and the posts on "How to order an Italian coffee in Italy", "An introduction to Italian Candy", and "Italian Gift Guide" were the most helpful. I arrived in Malpensa on the 3rd and stayed at San Donato a suburb of Milan (my wife had an apartment and was in Milan for the last 6 months). We visited the Duomo and unfortunately "Peck" was closed for Easter. We did stroll across the fashion quadrilateral though. Two days later We went on to Roma, Firenzie and Venice and returned to Milano. We took the EuroStar Alta Velocita Frecciarossa most of the time for our travel. A note on food. Rightly said, the combinations of coffee are definitely unlimited. I enjoyed the "cafe normale" and "moroccino" (thanks to your post). Breakfast was Brioche and cafe througout my stay. For a meal I couldn't go beyond the Insalata, the first plate and a bottle of Vino or Acqua. I am not much of a "Dolce" fan. However my wife splurged on the Gelatos and Granitas. She liked the Granita Di Cafe at Tazza D'Oro in Rome. Pizzas were juicy, heavenly. Especially in the ristorantes with wood fired ovens. Probably the only time I've seen Brinjals (aubergines/egg plant) as toppings. I must have had atleast 10 different labels of bottled water - Monte Verde, San Beneditto, San Pallegrino, Acqa Panna is all I can remember. Maybe the bottled waters of Italy deserve a seperate post on your blog. Food and Wine definitely taste better in Firenze. Tuscan cooking is incredible. I love the first whiff of Basilico from the dish. Though we were vegetarians we had several options in most Bars and Restaurants. Il Pinolo the restaurant near Porta al Prato where we had atleast 6 meals had some excellent house wine. Wine Lovers and meat eaters will rejoice in the Tuscan region. Chianti wine, Cheese, Fetuccine and Lemoncello was part of most of my meals. Pizza and Cafe was for in-between meals!. I bought a few packets of Pastiglie Leone. I couldn't get the tins in Carrefour (San Juliano) so had to be content with the cartons. While writing this I am chewing on a Vivident Cube (Senza Zucchero)! We did bring back a wedge of Parmesan (cut freshly from the wheel), 3 bottles of Tuscan Rose, a lot of chocolates including Pocket Coffee that you mentioned in your post. As for the chocolates I couldn't find the brands (in Carrefour) that you had mentioned in your post and peck was closed for easter. Ofcourse we did visit most of the UNESCO heritage sites in Roma and Firenze! We had an excellent holiday and thanks to your blog, an excellent culinary experience. Thank you very much.

You are so lucky to live in Italy and your food looks fabulous! I'm so jealous of both. Enjoy! Nisrine
