ENGLISH: Italian food is famous all around the world. I have never met a person who did not love it. Having eight Napolitan aunties in Italy who cook like demons, I never starve. So I thought I would share some of my food experiences with you and bring you along on my tour of "Eating the Boot Out of Italy". Here we start with a beautiful salad of prosciutto di Parma (cured ham), buffalo Mozzarella from Salerno, tomatoes from Sorrento and pizza bread from Brandi Pizzeria, Naples. BUON APPETITO!
ITALIANO: La cucina italiana è famosa in tutto il mondo. Non ho mai incontrato una persona che non lo amano. Avendo otto zie napoletane in Italia che cucinano come demoni, non ho mai fame. Così ho pensato di condividere alcune delle mie esperienze di alimentari con voi e vi porti al mio giro di "Mangiare La Scarpetta fuori d'Italia ". Qui si comincia con una bella insalata di prosciutto di Parma, Mozzarella di bufala da Salerno, pomodorini di Sorrento e pane da Brandi Pizzeria, Napoli. Buon Appetito!

Appétissante cette assiette mais pas au petit matin. Je préfère attendre l'heure du déjeuner.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Devo fare ancora colazione e mi vien voglia di mangiare le tua foto :P

E' una vera delizia sia per come si presenta nel piatto, ma immagino anche per il proprio palato.
Buon appetito a te!

the plate looks impressive and very tasteful for everyone,but i wonder haw much the calories are! In Greece there are a lot of Italian restaurants but they can't reach the authentics of your country.Excellent presentation with the context of the plate to be so impressive.
Have a good day and waiting the next one,Danos

Ciao Lisa. Something to look forward to on my trip to Italy. Looks so appetizing.Colourful and generous offering. Nicely photographed at a most beguiling distance-close enough to pick up the aroma. Regards. Klaudio.

Yum, yum, what a beautiful salad and I bet it tastes as good as it looks if not better. My mouth is watering! A fine capture with excellent colours and sharpness. Perhaps you could take up another profession as a food photographer:-)
I hope the heat is abating now, but I still think I prefer heat to cold and damp.

I'm a big fan of Mediteranean kitchen. I have an aunt in Italy that opened my eyes for this some years ago. The best food in the world.
Well done, a good day for you.

After the flood, you now have the storm. Very bad year for Australia. But with a little sunshine in the plate everything goes away.
Have a nice day

Voilà e quoi ouvrir l'appétit tôt le matin!Une photo à savourer....sans modération!
emka (76355) 2011-02-03 23:19
it looks great. Wow, ham from parma, and the best mozzarella, small tomatoes, I think some leaves of rucola - it must be fantastic. And you have eight Napolitan aunties?? It must be harmful for body mass index. it is a pity i only look at this photo.
MJR (3360) 2011-02-04 3:16
I want some - now !
A beautifully presented plateful: a beautifully presented photograph.
What a lovely idea, and as usual, a well executed photograph.

Mi sembra di aver già visto quest'ottimo piatto napoletano! (:-)
Forse siamo stati nello stesso ristorante!
As I have remarked elsewhere, it fine to see and good to eat!

A delicious composition!

kiks (11749) 2011-02-24 5:36
you keep on tempting me with all the marbellous italian food. I think that tonight or tomorrow i will go to the restaurant to enjoy an insalata like this one ;-))
tyro (19746) 2012-04-08 17:38
Give me a knife and fork right now!
I agree - Italian food really is the canine ovoid attachments. But, in the most part, it is all due to your poor, impecunious ancestors who made the very most of what ingredients they had at their disposal. As well as their resourcefulness. I mean, if you pick an olive off an olive tree, it's a horrible hard thing - who would ever think that you could squash them to reveal the most glorious olive oil? Or soak them in brine for months so that you could eat them?
And thank God our ancestors didn't have fridges or freezers because some of the greatest foods were invented purely as a means of preservation. Milk goes sour if you've not got a fridge, so why not make it into cheese? Bread doesn't last long either, so why not mix flour with eggs and dry it to make pasta? Or cure meat with salt and by smoking it so that it doesn't turn rotten?
A beautiful and appetising photograph with lovely true colours, perfect exposure and stunning sharpness. Food photography really is a speciality field in its own right but you have excelled here.
