Beating the Heat in an Italian Kitchen with ... Wine?

Honestly, who wants to cook in this heat? Not me. Who wants to grill when the temperature reading is in the triple digits?  Not Joe.


As you can see, it's a problem.


So last weekend, on a large wooden platter I arranged a meal of antipasti ... a beautiful assortment of herb coated salami, thinly sliced prosciutto, chunks of parmigiano-reggiano, Italian grissini, crusty baguettes, and vine-ripened tomatoes dressed in olive oil and vinegar.

No cooking required, but molto delizioso.


"Too bad I don't drink yet," Timothy announces. "All this would go perfectly with wine."


Chilled vino bianco. Now THAT is refreshing.
