A Christmas stop in Ventimiglia

It’s the 24th and is definitely suicidal to do our last-minute shopping in the market town of Ventimiglia but that’s the point, we wanted to see the wild hustling and bustling of panic-buying humanity so we went alright, but instead of watching the shoppers, we ended up gazing at all things bright and beautiful. …

While walking to the market, we passed by this window display of giant pasta.  Yes, this caccavelle pasta shell currently holds the world’s largest pasta shape.  Approximately 11cm wide, it comes from Naples and cooked in a hot oven stuffed with whatever combination dish you can imagine then topped with cheese….delicious!
