If you make a day trip to Orvieto, La Palomba is the perfect place for lunch or dinner. To read more about it, read my blog post, here.
One of my favorite things to do is visit Orvieto, an easy drive from Pergolaccio. To read my post about buying ceramics in this charming town, visit my blog, here
On a recent weekend I foraged for borage and visited my neighbor Marisa who gave me some farm fresh eggs. The result? Delicious ravioli. Read all about it on my blog.
Everyone loves the dishes at Pergolaccio. I bought most of them in Deruta, from a company called Sberna. They are my favorite in town, since they are all hand painted, but still affordable. For a full report, visit my blog.
Lots to see and do in Bevagna. There are a series of small craft museums, and one of the best biscotti bakeries in Umbria. For a full report, visit my blog.
A fun place to stop in Bevagna, to pick up some hand made baskets and rustic ceramics. For a full report, visit my blog.

I’ve admitted by shortcomings when it comes to foraging. I want to be a better forager. I intend to be a better forager. And one day I will be a better forager.
But in the meantime, when I have a springtime craving for dandelion green salad I have a very nifty trick. I invite my friend Carol over, and she is bound to arrive with a bag of freshly gathered dandelion greens. You see, Carol is very good at foraging (at least for dandelion greens). And she’s even better at being a dinner guest. Not only did she arrive with a bag-o-greens, she brought me a thick slice of pancetta and a nice red onion.
