Furthest flung from sea at 1908m above
South, east or westwards
But trout still rainbow in stream and alpine lake
Lashings of red combine with drunken, ruddy mountain berry
For our very own salmi di cervo and honest polenta
Gnochetti knocking on the Valchiavenna door with Valtellina pizzoccheri close in attendance
And of all the pasta in all the world you had to ravioli yourself right here Saucily
Vegetarian larks like soups with a regular crouton army, Tempting, teasing Taroz.
Burmese saffron, infant Achillea, pumpkin flowers, and Rosemary’s rosmarino.
We’re often vegan bound, happily, with a full house of mountain herbs and spices sometimes even with risotto.
Capers capering, cream of artichoke and caprino.
Golden temples of zabaione or zucotto minarets await so don’t desert, dessert.
Blitz of blueberry with taleggio and walnut décor anyone?
Superbly serene sun-kissed strawberry and semifreddo?
