From where I sit – March 30th, 2012
I must say, I find the whole Easter chocolate egg spectacle a bit bewildering… every man and his dog knows that chocolate wreaks havoc on a canine’s fine complexion and delicate constitution.
However, I am partial to the Hot Cross Bun, with a cup of restorative Lady Grey on an Easter weekend afternoon.
With Easter just around the corner, I thought I’d share one of my fondest Easter memories…
I remember well my last visit to Milan. Nose to the ground, I happened upon the most delightful fresco. This strange tile, the finest shade of cornflower blue, cemented into the pavement and showing, it seems, a hot cross bun being picked up by a Milanese baker ready to pop into the oven, a strange Italian practice.
Those Milanese Hot Cross Buns were some of the finest I can recall, you must try one should the opportunity present itself…. On that delicious note, may I wish a Joyeuses Pâques to all my lovely Bouvier friends.
