10 Things You Absolutely Must Do When You Are In Florence Planning a trip to Italy this year? Or maybe just fantasizing about it (as I do all day long!) Check out my list of things you absolutely MUST do when you are in one of my favorite towns in the whole world, beautiful, unforgettable Florence
Chilli Jam: Although I call this chilli jam, I don't mean by this that it's the sort of thing you'd spread on your toast at breakfast (though smeared inside a bacon sandwich, it could be a real help one hungover morning) but rather a chilli jelly - chelly? - that glows a fiery, flecked red and is fabulous with cold meats or a cheese plate. And just a small pot of it makes a gorgeous present.
Lemon Meringue Cake: In all honesty, the origin of this cake is simply that I cannot make a go of a lemon meringue pie. I've tried, and I've tried, and it's not that I've utterly failed, but I haven't completely delighted myself.
