Lunch @ Cafe Latte

It's Australia Day so we're celebrating the best of Australian cuisine - Italian food! As it is a national holiday a lot of places are closed but Cafe Latte it seems, is always open.

To help wash down our Australia Day meal we choose the 2007 Poggio Argentiera Bellamarsilia Morellino Di Scansano.

We begin

with an antipasto platter - roasted red peppers, the most delicious stuffed zucchini, frittata, mixed olives, arancini, prosciutto and mozzarella

For mains:

Paalo does Sam Kekovich proud and orders lamb - Lamb Cutlets on mashed potatoes with salsa verde

while I enjoy the Veal Scaloppine with bresaola, cherry tomatoes and sage.

To finish off:

  1. Hello there, I'm Gianpaolo from Poggio Argentiera, the maker of the Morellino that you had. I hope you liked and thank you for choosing it anyway. It's nice to see how far a bottle of wine goes from home...

  2. Hi Gianpaolo - we thoroughly enjoyed the Morellino and one thing could have made it better - if were drinking it in Italy!
