Italian in the Kitchen

It's been a while since I've actually had someone else cook for me without paying them.

An awesome friend of mine had just come back from her Europe back-packing trip and she very kindly invited me over for her homecooked italian lunch!

Had the usual lightly toasted bread & olive oil for starters 

We then proceeded to Sauvignon blanc & Abergine pasta (coz she knows how much I love the stuff) . The white wine was from Africa from her sister. Apparently the giraffes made it ahem.

My lil' chef! 

Then we had homemade Affagato for dessert. That's a mini Affagato-maker by the way, a pretty simplistic design but makes pretty good expresso.

In goes the vanilla ice-cream

I brought over some brownies I bought in Hong Kong called 'Market O' 

Was a tad bit too sweet for my liking but not bad for instant brownies I guess. They were surprisingly soft!


  1. Where can i get one of those affogato maker thingys??

    1. Er she bought it in Rome! I don't know if you might be able to find it on Ebay? Maybe can try googling 'instant expresso machine/gadget/appliance?'

  2. Yuuuuuuuum, delicious food and great company!

  3. The food looks so yummy!! The pasta and affogato looks so so good~~
