My Dad has been raving about an Italian grocer in NE DC called A. Litteri for months now. it's known for an astounding variety of olive oils, vinegars and meats. You can show up to buy a sandwich or to stock your fridge and pantry with all sorts of Italian goodies. What could possibly be better than that?!?!? I'll be sure to have a full report on our findings later this weekend.
In the meantime, my dear friend Erjona passed along a fabulous foodie blog to me called Nourish Me. If you love gorgeous food photography, lovely, fluid dialogue and delicious recipes (and who doesn't?), then check it out. Lucy, Nourish Me's blogger, is a writer and photographer in Melbourne, Australia. She countrs her greatest accomplishment as her "step-son's love of bitter greens." That certainly is an achievement!
Back in November she wrote about a Jamie Oliver recipe for pangritata - "a peasant substitute for Parmesan cheese born both of necessity and poverty, " according to Lucy. I'm planning on making this after my trip to A. Litteri. Once you see the pictures, you'll want the recipe. Start the drooling now.
