Vinando

After our rain drenched food shopping trip to Testacchio, we took a nap, then ventured out for dinner at Vinando (another Gina recommendation). OMG! There is a huge menu of "small plates" to taste along with an enormous wine list. We began with my stuffed fiori di zucchini (filled with ricotta and basil), which were light and crisp. Brad had a plate of bufalo mozzarella with olive crositni.

For our entrees, Brad had vitello con arancia, and I had vitello saltimbocca with a side of grilled zucchini.

We enjoyed a Vinai, a blend of three grapes in a lovely wine (Cantine di Palma).

For dessert (a rare occurrence), I had a semifreddo di mandorla, and Brad had a rich, thick chocolate mousse. (Yes, we know what it LOOKS like.)

Brad was a happy camper, again, and I was loving every minute!

Yesterday, Jerry bought me a case of Brachetto di Acqui in Piemonte. He will be bringing it to Montisi, so I thought I'd better practice with a couple of glasses in Rome.

I was thinking the same thing, and by all means Palma, one must practice, practice and practice some more. CinCin
