EAT LOCAL (CHALLENGE)

i don’t think my eating local really counts since i live in florence and i basically eat local everyday! so it's not much of a challenge. plus, from what i have read, you have to be in the u.s. to participate. but i have decided to contribute a few of my own local eating stories anyways! today it is baby radishes and farm fresh eggs. these eggs come from a small farm south of florence. the chickens are free range and dine on all of the vegetarian leftovers of the farm kitchen. so the eggs actually TASTE like eggs. you know what i mean?! the radishes were super juicy and spicey, like they had been spiked with hot chilis. it wasn’t really fair of us to pick them so early since they still need a couple of weeks to get to their proper eating size. but we couldn’t resist!

Ciao da Istanbul

I am working for a Italian language school in Istanbul and found your blog while searching restaurants in Florence for our web page.
I stayed in Firenze for 6 mothes and now missing every minute of it. I will go on reading your blog and have a smell of my Firenze
