Never in my wildest dreams did I ever see myself dining in a castle perched high over the beautiful Italian Coast….

……oh but yes…….it happened!!!

Castiglione della Pescaia


The beautiful city by the sea with its ancient winding streets, invited us to slow down and be embraced by the past…….

we so enjoyed walking about and enjoying the shops and markets……

you see where my nose takes me……….so predictable….

our host led the way to the beachfront….

the magnificent castle looking down upon us….

as we approached the beautiful beachfront…

 we found that our host had prepared a marvelous welcoming feast……

We stayed and ate so many delights and enjoyed the beautiful wines,

as the sun set and we thought our perfect day was ending…..

……..but no we are told that now……the evening will begin!!!

we take our walk up to and into the castle!!!

then the culinary delights begin…..

the most delightful and succulent octopus I have ever tasted……….

and then when one believes there can be no more………..a whole sea bass……oh swoon…..

a perfectly delightful and magical evening spent inside this most majestic castle…

  1. Stunning photos, Tinman. Food photog is an art, and you are an artist. Have you duplicated any dishes yet? Perhaps in Me DE a? Mer

  2. There was a outdoor billboard I saw in Toronto. It said TAKE AN ITALIAN HOME FOR DINNER. I was in Little Italy, but the only Italian I could find was a grizzled, gray bricklayer working on construction. I read the billboard again. The small print promoted an Italian wine. That I can do, I thought. This morning the rest of the dinner appeared. Octopus, Sea Bass. a castle. Would the magic never end. Virginia
