Focaccia at home

Via Luca della Robbia, Torino, September 23, 2016—

AFTER ALL THOSE restaurant meals, even though we're in a capital of food, it was nice to unwind after a day of travel — well, a few hours of travel — with a simple supper at home. We'd noticed a neighborhood bakery on the short walk to our apartment from the metro stop: ah, grissini, a loaf of rye bread, a couple of focaccias — oh, look: focaccia da Susa!

Around the corner, an attractive wine store: Why not a bottle of Arneis for the cocktail hour, to have with the grissini?

Down the block, a greengrocer: let's get a bottle of water, a couple of pears, a few fresh Italian prunes…

Oh: forgot to get milk for breakfast. Oh well, here's a neighborhgood CRAI supermarket. Milk and, why not, a bottle of cheap Grignolino.

Back home we had our Arneis and grissini, then the two dinner focaccias, one with prosciutto, the other pura Margarita: tomato, mozarella, basil. A little overcooked — Cook's not secure with this oven yet — but good, especially with a nice red wine.
