Firenze Files: Cibo a Casa

In between longer journals, essays, and reflections, I thought I’d share pictures of food I’ve eaten, purchased, and made.  This particular post is about food I’ve enjoyed at the apartment thusfar, and “cibo a casa” means “food at home.”  I think taking pictures is the easiest way to represent food, so although I don’t have time to tell the story of each piatta, please enjoy these images and captions.  I’m working on more in depth meditations about cibo italiano and the culture surrounding food in Firenze, so keep an eye out for coming updates!
