Asian monster menu, and photos of Italy

We spent yesterday in Colorno, trying to eat our way through Asia. Amy, representing Hong Kong, gathered her pan-Asian army of chefs – Andy from Taiwan, Donghyun from Korea, Louisa from Australia – and together they fed us well, very very well. We are ready for the new year.

Amy’s Asian menu

Only the beginning… Thai carrot salad, sushi, beef with eggplant, rice…

A Korean favourite: Bi Bim Bap!

Spending the day digesting it all. Thought I’d try some feasts for the eyes for a change. A friend of a friend is a sublime photographer of the Tuscan landscape and many other things beside. Check him out: Fabio Muzzi. Phew. Photos so beautiful you want to eat them for breakfast.

I was nosing around to see what other photos were posted of this neck of the woods. A site called TrekEarth has a gorgeous selection of photos from all over the world, including this region, Emilia Romagna – a few beauties of Parma itself.

You can take a virtual tour of Parma in a number of 360 degree photos on the Comune di Parma website.

    According to the smile on Amy’s face you are in some very cheery company – an excellent way to go.
