In Italy even the simple things can become a big deal. It all depends on using good quality ingredients, and even the simplest becomes super tasty.
Since I had to drive down from Rome to the southern Coast I stopped in a place called Battipaglia, close to Naples for their famous Mozzarella di Bufala. It’s far from cheap, but it’s definitely “the” place for buying mozzarella.
And it sets the mood for the perfect simple lunch watching the sea: mozzarella, bread, fruit and champagne. What else?
