From the airport in Rome, on the way to Abruzzo is a delicious feast all along the way,,stopping for freshly baked cornetti and cappuccino in the center of Rome then ..an hour or so later on to a pizza for lunch and homemade zuppa inglese and espresso for dessert..and finally before home a stop for a light dinner of bruschetta topped with champignon mushrooms sauteed with local olive oil, fresh parsley, freshly ground black pepper all atop one of my favorite locally produced breads made from the potatoes of the Fucino valley in Abruzzo…. a side dish of local pecorino cheese drizzled with local honey, a glass of Pecorino wine….and to end the meal..farm fresh apples in season and what else.a piece of Holiday Panettone!! As I always say… Fiumicino airport is a one day eating feast away from home in the mountains of Abruzzo!!
