The Dude of Food recently visited the Tuscan region of Italy. Luckily, my aunt and uncle were in the area and invited me stay at their rented villa for a night which happens to be a short walk from the cool old Italian village called San Gusme. In this village you will find one of the world’s finest culinary dreams come true. A place called Sira e Remino.
The restaurant’s sign which says Sira e Remino un cult, is exactly the kind of cult I need to join. Their place is located within the small old village walls and is awesome. The greeting and hospitality were warm and genuine. Our party of 7 were shown to the ‘Frank Sinatra room’ in the back away from the rowdy local soccer fan filled bar.
We began this heavenly experience with lots of wine followed by salads, anti pasta, then more wine followed by incredible sizzling meat trays. There wasn’t a thing that wasn’t perfect about this entire place, staff and meal. The prices were generous considering the quality and portions.
Thank you Sira e Remino. Now I’m thinking I should get a job here just to be close to your quality food.

One of the things that happens to the Dude of Food when he walks all over Rome is he begins to work up an appetite.
On my way to the Patheon I stopped at the Habana Cafe and had an awesome and affordable lunch.
Located on Via del Pastini 120, around the corner from the Patheon, you can get a great lunch, served by a cool staff for less that $15 euros. I sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance as I ate.
Off of Highway 100 in Nashville is a place called the Loveless Cafe. You may not be close enough to walk in but you can go to their web page and check out the stuff they make.
The Plain Ol’ Hot Sauce is one of the secret ingredients the Dude of Food adds to his homemade micheleada recipe. It adds the perfect amount of spice. Truth be told, the Dude of Food also likes Red Rooster from Louisiana hot sauce. They both go great in my micheladas and on my grits, greens, smothered chicken, gravy, stuffing and waffles.

The Dude of Food likes to put his money where his mouth is, so to speak. No, I don’t eat money but I like to make money while eating.
And when the Dude of Food says he likes a ‘meal deals’, don’t think he is looking for a local burger special.
According to Lakshmi Balachandra, the asst. professor of entrepreneurship at Babson College, ‘The consumption of glucose enhances complex brain activities, bolstering self-control and regulating prejudices and aggressive behaviors.’
And here I thought eating just made me happy.
So if you are getting a chance to make a deal, debate a contract or bid on a job, do it over a decent meal. The Dude of Food can always recommend a good restaurant and be a 3rd party witness, if needed.

So when I craved pasta with alfredo sauce I just took a half pound of bacon and pan fried it. After draining the pan I added some onions and finely chopped garlic. Fresh broccoli was added and then the frozen peas. Later I added a jar of alfredo and a small container of another brand of alfredo sauce and some milk. Add a dash of salt, some pepper, some basil or mint or whatever you like and bring to a simmer.
Add penne noodles and enjoy.
Top with cheese as preferred.
Barcelona is a fun place.
Good food, sangria, the sea, fun people and beer!
The folks at Damm Estrella beer are doing things right.
