Maridaje

The joy of a great meal with friends paired with the exquisite wine from Italy and the food designed and developed by my best friend. It doesn’t get better than this when it comes to a culinary experience.

I give you the pairing and each plate for the food porn enthusiast in you and me. 😉

Monday is the day we go groceries shopping. My hubby is still busy with work, but I was STARVING, so I put this together:

It’s not quite aglio&olio pasta because we don’t have parsley, and I throw a poached egg to make it richer with the delicious liquid yolk.

It was delicious.
Have a nice week, don’t mind monday: it’s nothing but a day.
