An alfresco kitchen, {mostly seafood} moments and meals with Italian friends

Il Baciarno Agriturismo Maremma cooking classes

This magical place, hidden in an olive and oak grove on the slopes of a small hill town in Tuscany's Maremma region, already made an appearance on the blog earlier this summer, when our dear friends Clelia and Andrea generously hosted the first half of a 'culinary gemellaggio' at their tiny agriturismo in Vetulonia. 

Apart from that memorable dinner with new friends, we were fortunate to spend a week with Andrea, watching him return from the sea with the morning's catch and effortlessly turning the freshest local fish and crustacea into his refined culinary creations. Memories of many meals and even more photos - so here are, in no particular order, favorite captures of some of these moments and meals at Il Baciarino, prepared in Andrea's fabulous alfresco kitchen and served on their incredible view terrace ...

PS: Il Baciarino made its first appearance on this blog over two years ago, when we stumbled across this magical place while exploring Maremma for the first time 

Grazie, Clelia e Andrea, for unforgettable days at Il Baciarino!
