Black and White Wednesday #104

Simone from Briciole is hosting Black and White Wednesday and this week my photo is a tribute to a beverage that's become somewhat of a late afternoon ritual while we're here in Italy - Negroni.

Kamut Pancakes

One of the things I enjoy doing while in Alba is being able to experiment with different flours from my "local" mill - Mulino Marino. While I can find a few products back in Melbourne, the price charged tends to put them out of my range for everyday use. I've previously used their Sapori Antichi and Sette Effe flours - this time I'm trying their Kamut.
