Last week my friend, Brandy, came to town before she started a whirlwind tour of Europe. She spent two nights here in Milan and I tried to get her to all the major highlights.
Those include...the Duomo, Castello Sforzesco, Luini's, and the cemetery! I love taking people there!
I also fed her some classic Milan cuisine...osso bucco with risotto Milanese and pizza from the delicious pizzeria, Pizza AM.
Feeling a bit under the weather, I delved into some of the tea that was gifted to me by one of my students, Jessica, during the holidays.
|Thanks Jessica! So delicious!|
|Reading Pasricha's The Book of Awesome and drinking tea from a favorite mug...|
a happy day.
Over the weekend I headed back to one of my favorite places, Le Proposte.
Have I mentioned it before?
This restaurant is located about an hour outside Milan, near Piacenza, in a town called Corano. I love the food here. Fresh ingredients and everything made by the family who owns and operates the restaurant.
They have a menu, but I've never seen it, as the daily offerings are rattled off by those running the dining room.
And when they ask you about whether or not you'd like to start with the antipasti...you always say yes! (It's my favorite part!)
We also had two different pasta courses. So amazingly fresh and delicious.
|pumpkin ravioli and ricotta and spinach ravioli|
We didn't save any room for the secondi (meat course) but did have dessert. This place...I could go on forever.
|strawberry and custard tart|
Not to mention the views from this place aren't half bad either...
...and neither was the company!
Osso bucco from Osteria dell'Acquabella, in Porta Romana. Reservations necessary.
Information about Le Proposte available at the link included within the post. They're closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Reservations highly recommended. (I mean, you'd hate to drive that far and then not be able to eat, right?)
