It's early morning at Campo de' Fiori market in Rome. Ideally we have just had cappuccinos and cornetti at Tazza D'Oro. Everything looks delicious because it is Rome---and even the air is delicious. These eggplants catch our eye.
We will take them home and fry them as simply as possible in good olive oil with a bit of salt and pepper. We'll stuff the tender slices of eggplant into fresh-baked rolls--making the most basic of panini. Into our knapsack they will go; along with a bottle of chilled Frascati. Off to the Orange Gardens on the top of the Aventine Hill we'll go---for the ultimate Roman picnic. http://ow.ly/o2AF1
What would you make with these 'melanzane'---and what wine would you drink with it? #MarketMonday
