I am writing from sunny Rome…The flight was wonderful, can’t say the same about the food on the plane- that was terrible!!
But thats okay I was dreaming of my breakfast (prima collazione) in Rome!!
I couldnt wait to get my first cup of authentic cappuccino and a real cornetto (pronounced cor-neh-toe) -the Italian version of the croissant- so first stop was Giolitti– one of Romes most famous coffee bars. Now my most perplexing dilemma was what flavor of cornetto I was going to take. Should I go for the healthy version which is called integrale (that means whole wheat and is made with honey , no sugar)- or should it be the one with Italian pastry cream inside.? I took the integrale- there will be plenty of ? pastries with the authentic Italian cream. Anyway, it was a great choice- healthy never tasted so yummy!!
What a perfect way to wake all of your senses up in the morning!!
We are off to my mountain top villa in the mountains of Abruzzo.
