Sienna must be one of the most beautiful old cities I have ever been to. After walking through the streets and around the area of the annual horse race and taking lots of photographs we needed to get some nourishment. We found a quaint restaurant just outside the old walls – Ristorante Imaestri. We started with 2 antipasti of local ingredients – one was a potato dish which they make daily and the other was a cauliflower soufflé. After that I had Pici Al Funghi Al Ragu for my mains and Dave had Lasagna. We both had dessert of baked egg custard tiramisu’s. We shared a bottle of Chiani Colle Senesi, a local red wine. The owners spoke not a word of English but the waiter did and he and Dave chatted about all sorts of things. The bill came to €40, and was well worth every cent. I would stay in Sienna again, but choose a different hotel as the one we stayed in was not great. This photo was taken with my cell phone!

I am passionate about using regional, seasonable and sustainable produce when I cook. I live in Gordons Bay with my husband and dogs. Dave and I are busy building a house which is an adventure all in itself. Each year we visit a new place overseas to experience the food of the area. Follow along on our adventures!
