Such a long time since the last post, and what a lot has happened. Early September we had a young woman to stay, she is the daughter of a very dear friend, and we loved having her visit. M loves food, and is an excellent cook, and while she didn’t get to do too much cooking with us, she put together a lovely entree one evening. No cooking required, but the simplicity and depth of taste and texture is all you can wish for.
The mozzarella was plump and fresh; the tomatoes, although too early in the season to be out of the garden, were bright and firm; the pesto was just the right mix of tastes (out of a jar, and never quite the same as home-made, but hey we were looking for easy…..); and a local Martinborough olive oil drizzle completed the plate. Simple and satisfying.
