Semifreddo cioccolato bianco e lamponi

La Tavolozza

Wandering around Norway’s South-Western Coast last summer, directions to a lighthouse caught my eye.
My romantic seaman’s character managed to convince me it was a must-do.
An unpleasant surprise was waiting for me at the gate though: just to get in the open-air area of the lighthouse the price was more than eight euros.

Despite the disappointment – ‘WHAT?! Pay for a walk around a lighthouse?’ was my mantra for about ten minutes – I could only:
– walk away
– praise the Norwegians’ marketing skills, the place was full of tourists, from German campers to elderly Americans
– think how spoiled we Italians are

Not that I have found out about that just now, no, international friends stare in awe at unique landmarks we came to take for granted in our everyday life. The reasons? I like to think it is just their overwhelming quantity, and I believe this is even more true when we talk about food.

I had this in mind the last time I went to ‘la Tavolozza’, one of the many restaurants turned into classy venues, which draw on the tradition of old inns and taverns, with their diverse regional traditions of natural local food.

Semifreddo cioccolato bianco e lamponi but my preference in cold desserts goes to white chocolate, here with raspberry sauce.
