So here I am and I made it to fiesta Friday, not in a ford fiesta but in a borrowed micro Fiat 500. The Fiesta happens every week, I hardly ever make it but today I am going to be there, today is actually Friday Fi’yeasta ‘ i.e. the celebration of all things yeasty (or was that last week and I am a week behind? More than fashionably late perhaps? Anyway although I did make a focaccia last week, adorned with fresh rosemary, large sea-salt crystals and red onion, pretty and delicious dipped into Sardinina extra’virgin olive oil, I didn’t take any pictures so I am reduced to bringing with me loaves of baguette from an older posts instead. The post may be older but the recipe is divine and worth the time it takes. They taste just like the real thing.
Also instead of the ocean I am bringing you all the image of spring. So to the first question? Does size matter – as one of my work colleagues used to say ” it depends on” , he wasn’t a native English speaker, but he did have a point. Regarding baguettes, and focaccia as a foodie I’d have to say – yes size matters. Because you need enough for the ravenous guests you have to satisfy. Regarding cars – for Europe the smaller the better, and if you can the get the train instead you will likely be happier! The image of the 500 shows, that small can be beautiful and you can park anywhere, and you don’t have to drive an SUV to be happy! Happy Fiesta Friday all!
