(Some rather grainy and blurry snap shots!)
A watched pot never boils
A spot of fire contemplation
The resident chefs cooking up a storm
Gnocchi making, with the genuine article gifted to Rachel from family in Italy when we visited last year
Meanwhile outside the trees were going in (there was a slight oh oh moment when a water pipe was damaged - a wonderful local plumber fixed it up in no time)
And the gnocchi was very very good...
