Strawberry tiramisu. YUM!
Strawberry tiramisu. YUM!

One of the most wonderful things about living in Caccianebbia is our neighbours.  I mentioned in an earlier Blog that Maria taught me to make polenta and her delicious tomato sauce. Many times, her husband Armando heads up our driveway in his Ape (a three-wheeled ute that sounds like a lawnmower!) with eggs, potatoes, onions, zucchini - whatever produce they have growing in their vegetable garden at the time.  On Tuesday, our other neighbour, Giovanna called in with a fresh ricotta she'd made that morning from the sheep's milk her husband had milked from their sheep. Last night, she and her daughter called in with some strawberry tiramisu.  The biscuits are soaked in milk instead of coffee and pieces of strawberry are mixed through the mascarpone and sprinkled on top. It was delicious! But it is the kindness of these people that is so overwhelming and makes us glad that we chose Caccianebbia as the place to live and to have our B&B.
