Our day began with a rainstorm - lots of thunder and lightening and rain, so breakfast was served in the Baurs' lovely new kitchen. What a pleasure it must be to cook there.
On the menu today was:
My usual yogurt & muesli - Freshly baked focaccia - Peach crostata - Local goat cheese - Fresh strawberries, pears & peaches - Proscuitto -Tomatoes with olive oil, balsamic & marjoram - Fresh fruit juice drink created by Micha - Coffee too.
These are our neighbors in the other room at Baur B&B - Joe and Judy, who are also from Southern California. Joe read my blog and noticed that we were going to be at the B&B the same week, so we introduced ourselves by email before we even arrived.
We took a ride into Acqui to scout out the location of tonight's restaurant, I Caffi. Several of our Slow Travel friends have dined there and raved about it, so it is our one splurge dinner of this trip.
