I find it rare to have an opportunity like that, Bill. And I use 24mm to do a lot of my tabletop pics. I do shoot a lot of alfresco stuff. And snapping away in supermarkets is surprisingly worthwhile.

Snapping in stores can definitely pay off. This one from Montreal licensed (not for a great sum, though).

In Quebec, maple syrup is almost a separate food group.

Didn’t take any pictures of the peach cobbler. While it was fresh out of the oven and still bubbling, I filled two bowls and dashed over with them to share with my daughter. She lives about 3 miles from me.

I looked, and I already had shots of a previous peach cobbler.

So what...I’m lazy today. Maybe just tired. Or....maybe I forgot in my haste to eat it! 😏

Sicilian speciality, gelato in a brioche, and yes I did eat all of it! Worthwhile taking a picture as it sold for $153

Just curious, Mark -- did they do Parmesan on your pasta in Bologna?

 

And did you eat any of their horse meat?

I'm sure it was offered but I don't think I used any- certainly not for the pic. It was very well flavoured as-is.

Horse? No, couldn't stretch to that and it seems pretty rare these days. A friend had some last time we went to Treviso, but only really as a garnish, a few reddish strands.

I do recall a "carne di cavallo" stall in Padua market though, but that was back in 2010.

On my street in Rome, in Trastevere (the Via Benedetta), there was a cavallo butcher in 1965. Before we figured out the sign's meaning, we wondered why the beef had so little fat in it. 

 

Here's some pasta with nothing on it.

You don't happen to be in "The Porch House" do you?

Mmm

FYI cider is only made from apples. We don't qualify the term. There is an unfortunate modern tendency for some brewers to call perry "pear cider" but it isn't cider.

Cider? Then what -- brightly colored, triple-sweet cocktails with umbrellas in the glass? I'll have another pint of your best bitter, please.  ☹️

Ah! OK. Thanks. When I was there "The Porch House" seemed to be OK but food a tad expensive for a poor photographer.
