Pesto, presto!!

Today was the first day of my Mediterranean diet cooking class.  So in theme of the day I decided to make a little homemade pizza.  I went to a few little markets in Florence to get my yummy ingredients.  Today in class, my professor took us to the main market in Piazza San Lorenzo that has fresh fruits, veggies, meat and pretty much everything you could ever want to eat.  And the best part is that most of it (fruits and veggies) were picked and delivered that morning, free of pesticides and all! Sad how our food back home contains everything but the basic natural nutrients. At the market we sampled olive oil and balsamic.  Different grades and ages which were all SO delicious.  I sampled a 3ml bottle of balsamic that was $300! It was worth every penny going down. Yum, yum! Below is a pic of my homemade lunch made of fresh pesto, mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes all on top of bread specific to the Tuscan region. Buon Appetito! :)
