We are a friendly lot at the Bellevue Alpine Lodge. So much so, that sometimes even the guests get the chance to work in the kitchen!
Mandy - owner of the Lodge - takes up the tale:
Riccardo & Veronica (pictured below) are staying with us for a couple of weeks.
The other day Riccardo asked me to show him some of my recipes and, of course, my answer was yes...but only if you teach me a pasta recipe!
So, last night he cooked a typical pasta dish from Bologna: 'Gramigna alla salsiccia' with sausage meat, olive oil, red wine, thyme and parmesan.
We shared this delicious meal with our other guests, and followed a wonderful dinner with a few games of cards.
