EAT: Gelato - we try (mostly unsuccessfully) to limit gelato to the weekends. Currently, my favourite flavour is the pinolata (pine nut with vanilla, tastes like candy popcorn) from Zambolli.
DO: Visiting an osmiza. They hark back to the days when Trieste was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire and there are a whole bunch dotted around the area. Open for a few days/weeks a year, they sell their own fresh produce (cheese, meat, boiled eggs, wine, etc.) and are marked by a bunch of branches hanging from the building; the freshness of the branches is indicative of how long the osmiza has been open!
LISTEN: Paolo Nutini's new album. I've always loved his voice and I'm enjoying the bit of funk sound it has.
I think it's about time for a blogger's retreat in Trieste, don't you? Cheese, meat, gelato - all sounds good to me. Thanks Michelle!
