View From Your Table

Trento, Italy


Trento, Italy

Two views from the same table in Trento, where my son Matthew and I had dinner with Patrick and Inge Deneen and their kids. What you don’t see is the homemade digestif the restaurant owner brought to us. It was a kind of grappa fortified with honey, herbs, and spices — and it was delicious. We asked him where we could buy it. Nowhere, he said; he makes it himself, for his restaurant.

Later today: on to Munich! On the four-hour train ride, I’ll do my best to write a substantive post on this conference I’ve been attending.

Yes, but try to enjoy the landscape, too. We won’t mind if we’ll have to wait.

Stop it with the food posts already. LOL. You’re making me want to jump on the next plane to Italy.

Don’t keep your eyes glued onto the screen—look out the window and see the visual pleasures that await you.

The pasta looks amazing!

Enjoy Muenchen — it’s a great town.
