Touring Italy: the Sorrentine Coast

Hello fellow foodies! So, my family and I took a trip to Italy last night. Not literally, although I wish we would have, but the food was just as good. We went to Caputo Brothers Creamery for one of their “Touring Italy” dinners. It was our first time going, but we will definitely be back – delicious food, great wine, and even better company – what more could you want!

Hope you enjoy your trip to the Sorrentine Coast:  🙂

  1. looks luscious. We had fried zucchini flowers our last meal in Rome. We had with Oxtail. And fried artichoke. We also had something called Malfatti.I will let you figure that one out. I have a picture of that.
