My dhal was very dry but tasty. The chicken was lovingly raised by a friend and the wine came from family friends of my partner who have vines, olive trees and also grow black chick peas amongst other many old traditional legumes including saffron ! The tomatoes were home grown and bottled by another friend last summer.
I love the fact that I can use local traditional italian country ingredients in indian cookery! For me, that’s a bit special. My number 1 cat wasn’t that impressed 😹

@Salma Khatun Thanks Salma. We have 3 cats all just turned up on the doorstep as kittens abandoned over the years. Number 2 cat was only 3 weeks old, I bottle fed him every 4 hours for what seemed months!!! 🤪

@Rooroo I am in Tuscany but very close to the umbrian border which has been a real pain during the lockdowns because my friends are in Umbria as is my bar of choice ☹️🍾. When we are red they are yellow or vice versa!! However, I am lucky to be in the countryside so I can get out and walk in the forests and mountains that surround us.
