Ed from Tomato has been busily arranging a get together for Melbourne Food Bloggers which is or was happening today. Unfortunately Paalo and I couldn't attend but we decided that we would throw our own little picnic to celebrate here in Florence.
Finding a picnic spot proved a little more difficult than expected but we finally found a good spot here
in the Piazza D'Azeglio
Sitting under the grand trees resplendent in their autumn foliage we enjoyed a simple lunch with ingredients bought this morning at the market.
A good hunk of Taleggio
and a round of Fresh Goat Cheese, mortadella and
porchetta, with those wonderful tuscan bread rolls, soft on the inside but with that splintery crunchy crust.
Paalo's porchetta and taleggio panino
My panino looks like it's licking it's lips!
To finish we enjoyed these Sfogliatine filled with Crema Pasticceria.
While we weren't there in person we were certainly there in spirit and do hope all enjoyed themselves.
In the coming days there should be posts popping up about the actual night but do check out the flickr set Bloggers' Banquet for the photos.
