I love travelling and have the general life philosophy that you learn about people and cultures through your stomach. So I'm really pleased that this month, my article for Food&Co_ on a long lunch in Florence was published. Click here to read the article. I provide a taster below:
FOOD MEMORIES: IN SEARCH OF A GOOD LUNCH
Words & Photography by Fiona M Symington
I’m not one to argue with an Italian who is passionate about his food, especially one who has had lunch at the same place for the last thirty-five years.
I had turned up early at Da Mario in desperate need of a good lunch. Tuscany had been a disappointment; places were either closed for the holidays or overpriced. So it was with a sigh of relief that I was lead to the last available seat at this trattoria near the Piazza del Mercato Centrale. It was here that I found Angelo, already in residence.
