Peruvian TurroneBuenos Aires – The other day in La Plata we’d picked up a Peruvian specialty that someone was hawking on the street – turrone. Different from the Italian torrone which is a honey nougat with nuts, this, traditionally, is a three layered very dense honey spice cake with honey in-between the layers and glazing the outside. It’s a festival dessert, so tends to get decorated with all sorts of little festive thingies. That’s the technical pastry term. It’s quite good and very rich!


You may or may not have noticed that I’ve been gradually changing around the righthand column here to make it a bit less cluttered, and hopefully easier to use. I took out a lot of links, rearranged the order a bit, and my most recent addition is a method of subscribing to this column (free). The “RSS” feed was always available (and still is for those who like using their own RSS readers) way down at the bottom of the page, but I’ve just never quite figured out how all that works, nor do I want to put the time into figuring it out. So when another blog that I read started offering a little easy subscription method direct to my e-mail box via FeedBlitz, I decided to jump on the bandwagon. Don’t worry about your e-mail address being spammed by all sorts of stuff afterwards, FeedBlitz will send you I think one or two e-mails welcoming you and explaining how to use the service after you sign up (and then you can use it for other blogs that you like, if you feel the need to read anyone else after me), and then you’ll just start receiving my columns in your e-mail box as I post them. The only drawback is that until I figure out a way to preview my columns you’re going to get the first draft unedited version – I have a tendency to immediately proofread and make corrections for a “final” version – a lot of it is just getting the photos to line up right, but I do make grammar, spelling, and occasional other edits. On the other hand, you’ll get the core of the information and you don’t have to do anything other than check your inbox. Up to you!
