Food & Family in GermanyJuly 4, 2017 in Germany
We try to make it to Germany at least every other year to visit Nico's family. Fortunately the weather was quite good in Germany - we had temperatures upwards of 30 C which made for great pool weather. We also enjoyed a walk in the hills around Aidlingen. And of course couldn't get enough of the quality bread and hefeweizen.
It's always exciting to see extended family too, especially over dinner at one of our favorite Italian restaurants, Da Vittorio. We were joined by the Wieland family (now qty 6 with Phil's gf Johanna), Opa and Robin.
Nico started with an appetizer portion of the Tortellini in Brodo (broth) and Brittany had red beet carpaccio with goat cheese and arugula. For the main course, Nico ordered Orata al Sale (Dorado baked in a salt crust) and Brittany got the popular Taglioni ai Tartufo Nero (homemade pasta lightly tossed with cheese in a parmesan wheel, topped with black truffles). A+, 10/10, 100% for every course! We long for a restaurant of this caliber in the US.
We spent close to 4 hours enjoying the food and company. Brittany needs to work on her German, but luckily, Nico's cousins were happily speaking English.Read more
