On our way up to the Alps we stopped for lunch in Trento.  There is a
heavy Austrian influence in the city and I am the beneficiary by way of pig, wheat beer,
and cooler temperatures.  Still, that is polenta on top of the sauerkraut.

What is a meal without the chick pea course?

Cake, Papoo’s homemade grappa, and the limited production dessert wine that makes you cry.
