Eating too well

We’ve eaten very, very well in Europe. Too well really! In the last six weeks, there a few extra kilos following me around and they aren’t in my bag. I’m hoping truck life corrects that.

Almost all of our meals have featured European cuisine—and we’ve tried a lot of local dishes too.

On our first night in Berlin, four of us tried the neighbourhood Italian. We had a fantastic antipasto platter and I ordered something I’d never seen before as my main dish. Of course, now I can’t remember the name of it, but I remember the cooking technique.

The pasta dish was made at the table and meant to be an attention-getter. The chef first scraped cheese from a huge wheel of parmesan. To this, he added alcohol and lit it, He finally added tagliatelle and the remaining ingredients (including cream and thinly sliced truffles) that he stirred through until it all was heated. Most impressive, and very tasty.

Our dining companions were Lutz and Maren, our wonderful hosts in Berlin. And check out that wall of wine behind them.

    Yum yum and more yum! Best to be well fed before you get on the truck! That way you’ll have pleasant memories when the food gets a bit ordinary. Great photos too Peggy,
