Today is International Women’s Day and we’re celebrating with mini mimosa pan di spagna (Italian sponge cakes)! Hooray!
The weather in Southern Tuscany has been absolutely disgusting. In the last ten days, we’ve had snow/constant thunderstorms, which is why my pan di spagna pictures are a little grey and moody and not their usual bright vibrant selves. Lack of light is a constant source of distress for me. I live in an apartment in the Old Town and it’s stacked living. We’e surrounded by palazzos (all of which are empty) that start casting a shadow over my kitchen at about 9am. Our bedroom is constantly dark. It’s akin to living in a giant concrete forest and I am absolutely hate it.
