    Italy trip report

    Her ladyship and I have returned from Italy with many fond memories. We spent four days in Milano, five wandering around Tuscana and three in Modena. The highlight of the trip was dinner at Osteria Francescana in Modena. Massimo Bottura was a very cordial host who was very much involved in everyone's meal. I had the Memory of a Mortadella Sandwich which was so good it is hard to describe. An explosion of flavor is the best I can do.



    Then I had the Short Ribs with Tradional Balsamic Glaze. It had a fascinating crisp texture and was wonderful.



    It was an unforgettable experience dining in such a world class place.

    Also in Modena I had the usual Bolito Misto with Modena's version of the five sauces. In fact I had it twice. Always wonderful.



    And in Milano my old favorite, Osso Buco with risotto Milanese and fresh truffles.



    Altogether a marvelous time.

    Retirement is good to me. I am fortunate enough to travel and am very much enjoying life.
