How do Italians like their Ananas?
Last Saturday Les and I joined Ella and Rob on a Gourmet Italian Food Safari in Haberfield, Sydney. It was a day of delicious discoveries as we visited delis, and cheese, chocolate, bread and pasta makers.
I asked the proprietor at Frank's Fruit Market in Ramsay Street why I hadn't been able to find any Italian recipes that used pineapple. Frank said that Italians love fresh pineapple but don't generally cook with it.
He then dissected a couple of prickly pears for the group. They were yum! As were the zucchini flowers he sold me to cook as fritters, Anne.
Lamonica's IGA Supermarket certainly had an ample supply of pineapples too!
