Easter Eating

view of the umbrian hills
It has taken us a little while to warm up to Roman Easter. We usually kind of ignore it. Last year we moved during the holiday. It has been hard to let go of long lazy days in a tiny beach town on the coast near Durban.

This year we celebrated with style with who I refer to as Rome's Martha Stewart, Elizabeth Minchilli at her beautiful Umbrian country house Pergolaccio.

We ate, and chatted, and ate and laughed and ate again.

  1. It was a complete pleasure having you there! You forgot to mention music (thanks to Noah) and EXPERT potato chopping and salami slicing. That made all the difference. xxoo
