Olio e Fiore

As you can imagine during the time I lived in Venice, I enjoyed the Italian food very much. They have such fantastic good food, that is tasty even if you eat it kind of pure - like prociutto crudo (= raw ham) on a piece of pane, even simply olio mixed with a bit aglio (= garlic) and peperoncino (= chilli peppers), used as a sauce for pasta (called Pasta aglio e oglio) is soooo tasty. Or a piece of that tasty pecorino - mhhhhh so good (litterally "little sheep" = sheeps cheese, but not feta-like).

Since I returned I hardly go to those so called "Italian Restaurants" here - because most of them don't prepare the food real italian like. But one place though is really cool it's a Pizzaria called "I due forni". There the pizza really tastes like in Italia. They also claim the waiters are real Italian because they are very unfriendly, but I don't think it's THE attribute of italian waiters, usually they've been very kind to us.

Now from time to time my family orders some food from the Tuskany, in a package that contains one entire pecorino, some bottles of this olio d'olive (like the one I painted this weekend) and some bottles of good vine.

US $36.88

  1. I like this painting with the dark background. The light on the bottle is very dramatic.

    We lived in Italy for two years and I agree about the food. It is much more simple and not as heavy as the "Italian Restaurants" here in the U.S.

  2. Your art is beautiful and I am your newest follower. Looking forward to new posts.
