I’ve just come back from a week’s trip to Italy – a few days in Rome as well as a wonderful weekend in Amalfi. I will write about the special weekend next time, but I wanted to share some of the shots from Rome for now. I’ve been to Rome a few times before, but I seem to like it more and more every time I visit – the city definitely has something over above the great food and atmosphere… (my new favourites include Gelateria del Teatro, Roscioli and Il Pagliaccio, but please let me know your favourites also, I’m already ready for the next trip :))

I’m hoping to post a dessert recipe that I learnt in Amalfi (which uses a rather surprising ingredient) – wish me luck that I can come up with a slightly tweaked but delicious version of it…
