Extra Virgin Oil : Golden green from Tuscany

Have you ever seen Such a colour for an EVO ?
Extra virgin oil is part of ️our tradition : taking part to The Harvest , watching at The pressing in a mill & finally tasting a fresh green oil on a warm Tuscan bread slice roasted on The fire is The top!
This is The Real bruschetta : Just evo & a pinch Of salt & a bit if garlic .

On focaccia (kind of white pizza ) is so delicious….

Remember : if The ingredients are top quality you Have to Taste them as MUCH simple as possible : less is more 👍😉

An unforgettable experience if you visit Tuscany in October until beginning of December .

Enjoy ️my picts now 😉😉

London to me

You know I love this city as I could love a friend or a man or a mother who gives you life

Love it because it is a shining gem Inside myself

It knocks every day at ️my heart’s door and I answer
Yes, here I am
Here you are
Nothing changes if nothing changes

No words to tell you how important it is for me to know That I Have been part of London ‘s world for some months Of ️my life

I know London and I recognize it every time I visit it
but London could feel ️my footprints on its skin?
could it see The smile on ️my face?
My empty cups Of tea?

how deep & vivid is the memory of my past
‘The way We were’

everytime I go back
I feel at Home
Everytime am landing on London ‘s ground I smile ,
alone,
as I arrived there 30 years ago , a scared girl with a need Of freedom & indipendence
As I ️was meeting an old friend , ️the youngest part Of me

London to me is not Just a city
It’s a feeling
of
freedom
breath
dreams
light
fantasy
creativity
happenings
Colours
Smells
Choices
Possibilities
future
Past
Present
all together
It’s simply
Part Of myself
I am made Of it

An Italian woman with an English heart❤️
