Well as a total food nut esp one who loves to cook it's hard to think of my best meal ever but the best meal I have had in the last year was in
While I was in Italy over the holidays my bf took me to his favorite restaurant there. It was a very nice place, you had to be dressed up which I did
Anyway, I had this appetizer plate that had all kinds of Italian style mini appetizers. I don't know what half of it was but omg it was
delicious! Then for dinner I had a type of ravioli with a white sauce. The only word I recognized on the menu was gorgonzola lol but these were the
best raviolis I have ever had. I took the rest home and was really sad when they were gone. I can never have that unless I go back to Italy lol They
were so creamy and the raviolis were stuffed with cheese and spices, not sure what kind of cheese though but it was delicious. That meal is probably
my favorite in the last year that i remember.
I like to cook things myself and I wish I knew what this dish was so I could make it myself because I know my friends and family would love it.
Oh I forgot the fried treats I got at the Market there too were awesome! They were fried potatoes and cheese things. I have a pic somewhere lol The
girl I was with just called them "yummy fried goodness." She was right! lol
The food there was awesome! It was kind of nice too cause my family is Italian/Sicilian on my mom's side mostly and my mom always cooked from scratch
too and that is how I prefer to cook. It was nice to have actual home cooked food at restaurants there. They really do make everything from scratch.
Funny thing i learned there is that Bertoli pasta really is made there and it's very popular although most of the people there make their own pasta,
which I prefer as well. My friend said that Bertoli pasta is what you should use if you want to use real Italian pasta that is already made. Anyway,
the food was great and i gained almost 10lbs while there lol
