At last the blog is shaping up. Hello from Dogliani, Italy! Land of amazing food, abundant markets and fantastic scenery. The truffle and funghi hunting continues with much to record and revisit for the long awaited trilogy. Shaping up but no point in rushing…”dolce far niente” as the locals say. Quite right, and with a bottle of Dogliani’s finest ‘Madonna Delle Grazie’ for company, why not ‘far niente’ a wee bit longer? Salute!
