A Slow Food Sunday




Making mozzarella

Thank you Allison for hosting the event and sharing your recipe :-).

After making mozzarella we all went for lunch at the Tasting Shed on State Highway 16, it was a lovely day out, the sun was almost warm, and the Tasting Shed was a good discovery. 


All serious about our food!

  5. @ Dana, beh, direi abbastanza normale se sei in un gruppo eco-gastronomico :-).

    @ Artu', che meraviglia, sarei andata volentieri anch'io, mi piace la montagna e chissa' che formaggi di malga che avevano li', e poi magari miele, frutti di bosco... chissa'... posso solo immaginare :-).

  12. I didn't know what a gannet was... It's sula in Italian, I actually didn't know anything about this bird... You never stop learning! Great pics!
    PS. By the way, how do you pronounce Waitakere?
