It is a brilliant November day here in Acqui Terme Piemonte and after a horrendous few days of storms it looks fabulous, the air, the sky, the water drops sparkling in the trees. Just makes you glad to live on such a precious planet. So I wanted to share some nature shots from literally a step outside the doors of Verdmont. Right outside The Room at Verdmont.
Towards the end of the month we have a wonderful fair in Acqui featuring the famous white truffle but more than that there are a wide variety of local foods, cheese, honey, snacks , pastas preserves and wines to try and to buy. I usually take alot home to give as Christmas gifts or for the Christmas table.
The event is Mostra di Tartufo Acqui Sapori, very catchy title but it is on 25 November 2018 so save the date!
Happy truffle or Porcini hunting, the weather is a perfect combination of damp and mild conditions. Perfect for autumn risotto!
