We then got a lesson in wine tasting...even her younger brothers had a taste...much to our laughter at our youngest face when he tasted the wine.
We enjoyed both of the pastas dishes quite a bit...we could not wait for the next course! The next course was a delicious chicken cutlet with a rich mushroom cream sauce. It was super yummy...the boys could not get enough. We were all starting to get full now but there was more to come....we moved on to the fruit course(in Italia the last course before dessert is either fruit or salad!) We enjoyed a platter of grapes, watermelon, and peaches.
After the fruit course was complete, we all sampled Limoncello. Limoncello is traditionally served chilled as an after-dinner digestivo. To settle the stomach and help digestion. Next was dessert and coffee. We had Limoncello Semifreddo with a strawberry sauce and biscotti.
It was so delicious...not a single slice of semifreddo was leftover. The semifreddo was layered with crushed biscotti,almond, and white chocolate....lovely!
Next was stories, photos, and gifts!!
