We all know how cycling is plagued with drug doping. Well, I do drink vino or birra with most dinners... but I don't think anyone has ever claimed that they are performance enhancing. So, to keep me going out there, here are a some photos of what I might find cranking in my veins. View and weep.
|pane al pescatore.. a local specialty in Matera|
I must've eaten half a dozen of these
|a panina in Foggia.|
I was so hungry when I got this in my hands.
Me: 1 - Panini: 0
|focaccia con pomodori|
|some of the best grapes I've eaten... |
these in Lecce
|crostada di nutella. this should be made illegal.|
enjoyed this one on the very bottom of the heel in Puglia
|the Italian breakfast of champions|
a croissant jam-packed with nutella
|the outside of this panini had this dusting of sea salt and olive|
oil that left me licking my fingers for hours.
|these little nuggets have a nice, olive rich surprise inside|
|this panini had a tomato, cipolla (red onion), and olive tapenade in it.|
very savory. I think it was lunch in Lecce.
