The Perfect Birthday

Birthday Cake!!

Amongst all of the Christmas festivities, family dinners, touring of the Langhe and New Year revelry, I celebrated a birthday.

The perfect weather continued with sunshine and blue skies and I had the rare chance to celebrate getting another year older in a pretty spectacular part of the world.

In addition to being able to spend the day with my beautiful wife and two boys, I had the privilege of being able to share it with my Mum, brother and sister-in-law.

As an added bonus, Jo had booked us in for lunch at a little Agriturismo in Roddino, just up the road from Monforte.

Agriturismo Iride was the perfect choice – the food was divine – a degustation of traditional and superb dishes, the service was brilliant and the fact that we were on a working farm meant that the boys could stretch their legs as we continued to eat.

Below are some photos that will give you a feel for the meal. The meal was so delicious and so large that all thoughts of eating again for the day were abandoned until 9pm when, aided by a digestivo of local grappa, we cut into the Ferrero Rocher inspired chocolate mousse birthday cake… was worth the wait!

A perfect day.

  1. Buon compleanno a te, buon compleanno a te, buon compleanno caro Kym, buon compleanno a te.

    What a fantastic way to celebrate your birthday. The menu brings back fantastic memories of long lazy lunches in Italy.
