Kind of like Taco Tuesdays
Since I had lunch at my friends' apartment (more like finishing the cheese we bought with crackers and prosciutto - also another story about that later...ermahgerd)
I decided that I would make dinner that night of gnocchi and vegetables.
Lord knows we need them veggies.
I bought all of the ingredients
Gnocchi aint cheap, especially if it is fresh pasta.
Note: Fresh pasta floats as you know by now.
and went over to their place that night.
It is a simple recipe really of tomato sauce, basil, oregano, brown sugar, carrots, pepper, onion.
we had the Food Visualization and Representation class and we went to Eataly to tour around.
As she was explaining things about pasta to us, we passed by the area where fresh pasta is made and sold. The man had just made fresh tortellini and offered some samples to us...raw.
But, apparently, if it is fresh, you can eat it raw.
IT WAS SO GOOD. WTF.
It had like some type of cheese, pesto, or something delicious inside.
Dr. K bought us chocolate that seriously was heavenly.
According to Dr. K, you do not ever chew chocolate.
You just let it melt in your mouth to fully appreciate the flavor.
Duh. But still she taught us a lot of cool other stuff.
The 2 Most famous chocolate brands in Italy are:
She bought us Baratti&Milano hazelnut -infused chocolates that began to melt just from the heat from our hands. We popped them into our mouths and just...mmm o.m.g.
I ate 3 of those goodies.
