Menu for Hope 5-

My village as a Christmas Creche scene... getting ready for the holiday spirit- of Giving!!!

$10 for the gift of HOPE!
Cheap thrills!

It is that time of year again, as we fill our bellies with great holiday food and spirits, while there are those not so far away that are not celebrating.

I think this year, there are many who are not celebrating.

Yearly our favorite blogger Pim of ChezPim unites the blogger community to reach deep into our pockets and share with others.

This year I am offering two prizes:

EU12: Monday at the Market for two
The Diva of all this Tuscan, will take you on a
guided walking tour and tasting at the foodie mecca, the Central Market in Florence, and lunch at the Trattoria Sergio Gozzi, listed in Slow Food's guide to the Osteria's of Italy.
During lunch the Diva will also help you with planning your meals here!
Can be held on other days as well. ( market closed on Sunday
( for two people, value 250€- valid for one year, dates to be confirmed.)
Florence, Italy

EU 13: Dinner at Solociccia for two

Dining at master butcher Dario Cecchini's restaurant is a true feast! Seated family style, course after course accompanied by house wine and ending with a fabulous olive oil cake... and liquors. An experience not to be missed if you are coming to Chianti. ( Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights: 7pm or 9pm or Sunday lunch 1pm) Value 60€ Dates must be confirmed. Panzano in Chianti
