The Italians know food, pretty damn well. Its as fine an art as the art of dressing up, pursuing women, playing football or manufacturing cars. So the pasta dished out with a lamb ragout at Europa 92 is easily the best I have ever had the pleasure of digging into.
It tastes and smells divine, every ribbon of pasta is deliciously smeared with the finest olive oil, the juices of a lamb thats grazed ravenously in the Italian alps and let me not forget Modenas speciality, balsamic vinegar! All of these come together to lend a series of unique flavours and tastes which I am not going to forget for a long time to come. Its almost ruined every other meal for me, that is how high its raised the bar where food is concerned.
That meal was a fitting finale after driving the exquisite Italian supercar, the Maserati GranCabrio Sport. Both the meal and the car had kept the mood ebullient throughout, the car through the day and the meal at night. My brief pit stops into Italy have seldom been unrewarding and this weekend then was no less.
Onto the car then, the Maserati GranCabrio Sport is no ordinary spin off of Maseratis first 4-seater convertible. Its gorgeous undoubtedly, probably more stunning than the GranCabrio and easily the most good looking convertible I have ever laid my eyes on and a definite shoe-in to the title equivalent of the Miss Universe....
