Last summer when Donna and I traveled to Italy, our first meal happened to be at a lovely hotel and home of a great wine maker and his wife, who prepared us a feast that began with zucchini soup. It was zucchini season and so they featured it in three courses without apology, just an explanation. “It’s zucchini season.”
The soup was so simple it inspired. Onion, water, and zucchini, seasoned with good oil and salt.
This week, while I work in Key West, I’ll be posting some of my wife Donna’s favorite pix from last year. She likes this one for the way it shows off the power of back lighting. I like it because it brings our first meal in Italy back to me in its entirety.
