While staying in the hills of Liguria we often caught the local bus down to the Big Smoke, on the coast, namely San Remo. Wandering the streets we noticed two amazing sites. Both were food orientated but from opposite ends of the spectrum, and both were super-sized.
We sat having coffee waiting for the shops to open again after “La Pausa” or as you may know it “Siesta”. How civilized the Italians are – a few hours off in the middle of the day – to go home, have a leisurely lunch and a nap.
As we sipped our coffees the shops began to come to life. People were loitering outside the shop next to us. Then the shutters opened and a huge cheese cabinet was rolled out onto the footpath and then one huge cheese was carried out on it’s own table. I do not know what sort of cheese it was, but it was certainly impressive.
We had some time to fill in until our bus departed so we walked the streets some more. This is when we spied our next super-sized contender. We had seen this all over the place, in Europe and in Canada and although we have it in Australia as well, we had never seen it quite so big!
