Fava beans and chicori
Ice cream with roasted chilli, pistachio and chocolate pieces
Sizzling steak or Cacio e pepe pasta, take your pick. Both have their place.


These are a few pictures from the middle of Matera among the stone houses. There is also a very tidy and prosperous looking town around the old parts. So far my impression of Basilicata is very good. On the way here there were green rolling hills. I think they were growing potatoes and planting wheat, as well as all the windmills. I though Basilicata was deserted because everyone left to go to places like Australia and the US, but so far it looks like a good place to be.
