Last weekend we headed into Tuscany to meet Martha and Ben who've just moved to Italy. They've rented a house for two years and are just outside Monte San Savino, close to Cortona, Arezzo and the A1. Thanks to Ben and Martha we were going to the small village of Rigutino for a Sagra di Polento!

After a yummy lunch we browsed around the few booths that were set up. Just like in the states, fall means colorful gourds.........

Pumpkins and gourds

And this gourd looked like giant pear....


Of course now I wish we'd bought some of this pecorino cheese covered in straw.....

And yes, the polenta was delicious! And what made this sagra unusual was that the meal was lunch rather than dinner...a first for us.
