Tasty Tuesday {Dining}

For me, where you eat is just as important as what you eat. We’ve (attempted!) to ban couch eating at our house. And now that it’s summer I’d love to have every single meal al fresco if I could. 

I’d be just as happy with a light and airy sunroom. A fun and funky dining space would also do just fine.  
I would just like to put as much thought into where I sit to dine as to what’s on my plate! 

Tasty Tuesdays {Because You Are What You Eat!}

I talk about a lot of different things I love here – fashion, style, design, decor, travel…but one passion I’ve yet to delve into is…food! I am an out and proud foodie and take this love very very seriously. 

It’s gotten to the point where I just had to share some of my favorite eats with you. So I give you a new Apartment 34 feature ~ Tasty Tuesdays! Since talking about food could easily overtake everything here, I knew I had to limit it to just one day a week (at least to start!). 
To kick it all off, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite honeymoon meals.
I judge most things by the number of good meals I had, so I made a point to make sure we ate very well throughout our honeymoon travels. Whether it was old Amsterdam cheese, apfelkuchen and beers by the city’s canals, or lovely lunches of polenta with squid ink sauce paired with an excellent Valpolicella in Venice we made sure to savor each and every morsel.
1) tortellini in Borghetto 2) traditional Dutch seafood in a modern way at Spelt 3) Venetian cicheri 4) beet risotto at Spelt 5) polenta with black ink sauce 6) Dutch breakfast  at Gartine 7) dessert on the Amsterdam canal 8) black ink spaghetti 9) pumpkin tortellini with amaretti
We tried to sample the local speciality of each city we visited. It ranged from fantastic handmade tortellini outside of Verona, to a beautiful beet risotto (in Amsterdam no less and it was divine!). Feel lucky I didn’t take pictures of every gelateria we sampled because those posts would dominate Tasty Tuesdays for weeks.
Now back at home, I’m still hankering for those amazing dinners. I highly recommend my italian speaking readers check out La Cucina, a stunning italian cooking magazine. Every recipe makes me drool all over my keyboard.
Sunday-Supers, the Brooklyn-based cooking school on which I have the biggest foodie crush, also recently held an all italian dinner with delicious recipes. You can check it out here.
Bon appetito luvies!
