Finally, a traditional summer lunch. Fresh, raw broad beans with sea salt and fresh pecorino cheese with a semi stagionato pecorino cheese. Tuscan unsalted bread from Mr Buns bakery all washed down with a simple local tuscan red wine.
Additional datterini toms and the first basil of the season. Perfect !

@Debbie Gorman I expect they are only trying to help Debbie by keeping the plants hydrated 💦 and adding some extra flavour 🤮

@Hari Ghotra we are . The fresh pecorino was local. We have a few Sardinian families in the next valley and the Sardinians are mainly shepherds even though they are an island. They eat a lot of lamb and suckling pig and make beautiful cheeses. One with worms in ( dead) which I love but they are not allowed to sell anymore so the tradition is found only in homes. Sicily is very fish orientated. Strange no??

I sooooo love broad beans - such a short growing period here though. Looks so fresh, light and summery. So lucky!

@Debbie Gorman 😁 nothing wrong with pots on a terrace Debbie 😀 Let someone else grow the tomatoes 🍅. Mrs M has just been gifted 6 tomato plants from her father so it will be me (of course) who will be planting them outside this morning 🧎‍♂️🤷‍♂️

@Gordon Moore The broad beans were grown by the mill where I buy my veg and fruit . Outdoor toms have started to arrive from the south. They are available all year but up until now are greenhouse raised. They still have some flavour but are expensive. It is almost time to plant tomatoes outside here , unfortunately we don’t have any land it is communal . Doesn’t mean I can’t but i’m a geranium and herbs in a pot on my terrace kinda gal.
