A Taste of Tuscany

Worn by Jaime May 13, 2012 - May 16, 2012

We kicked off our summer adventures exploring the Tuscan countryside.  We stayed at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort ... oh Rachel, you would have loved it!

We took a Tuscan Sauces cooking class!  I kept our shoes tucked away in my camera bag during the class.  This is Jerry, our Italian chef!  We made five Tuscan Sauces together and Jerry paired them with different pastas that evening for dinner .... there was so much pasta that we had a separate table set up to keep the plates!
Basic Sauce with fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil
Mushroom Sauce ... this was delicious!
Walnut Sauce .... yummy!
The next day we drove to Florence and walked around the city.    I took you to the historic Ponte Vecchio bridge and hung the shoes on the amongst the love locks.

Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore
We walke the leather district ... the purses were gorgeous!
We thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility of our Tuscan Villa.
Kelty snuck in a photo wearing Daddy's shoes.  Awe.
The countryside really was covered in poppies!
We tracked down this shop in Bologna that was featured in a Samantha Brown
episode and ...
We ate bologna in Bologna!
