Posted by Haalo
With a peek out of the window this morning our plans for today changed. We had thought of taking the ferry to Como but with the amount of haze it didn't really seem worth it.
So, we're going to hang around and do as little as possible which is fair enough as we are leaving tomorrow and the day after that, we have another long trip ahead of us.
Doing as little as possible unfortunately does involve doing some work related things but this is the type of office we'd both be very happy with spending time in.
We did have a mid-morning stroll for a coffee and took the opportunity to visit inside the Church of San Giorgio
I thought this poster was interesting - you can go collecting mushrooms and if you are a local it will cost you €5 for the license otherwise it's €25. If you knew what you were doing, it's not that much to pay.
For Lunch we went back to Quatro Pass
Our appetiser was a herb and cheese vol-au-vent
Paalo liked my entree so much that he had it this time and I had the Ravioli in a sage burnt butter sauce. They had a delicious cheese and spinach filling.
Paalo's main was the Mixed Grill of Lake Fish - the large fish is the local Laverello.
I had the Veal Escalopes with porcini.
As with our previous meal, the food was excellent and it's a place we'd recommend you visit if you have the chance.
For dinner we ate at the hotel again and being the boring types we ordered the same things.
The starter - asparagus and chardonnay soup
For main - porchetta with a mustard and apple sauce with roasted potatoes.
Paalo managed to also fit in the dessert - a mixed berry gelato.
