Last week my 73 years old father sent me in Paris some artichokes and lemons that he proudly grew in his beautiful garden in Sorrento, my hometown in Italy.
I was happy as a child when I received them.
I love both artichokes and lemons so much! I was so proud of my dad and looking at them, so ripe and beautiful, I thought, what an excellent result he achieved! I called him immediately to congratulate him.
As Spring is in season, I looked also for some asparagus, mixed salad leaves, fresh and small fava beans and raspberries to make a Sunday’s salad as I wanted to celebrate and be grateful for what I received.
