Most of the day was spent with me in a meeting and Jennie shopping. Without Dean, her usual shopping companion, her efforts were somewhat lackluster. We closed the day with dinner at Al Pont de Fer restaurant, with wonderfully original dishes such as baked ham Spanish style with sea urchin, fried tiny rabbit kidneys, and pigeon breast with crunch rooster combs. We actually ate an appetizer platter of cured meats, wonderful thick spaghetti with a thick tomato sauce, and pork that had been marinated in balsamic vinegar for two weeks and then braised. We left the ordering of food and wine up to our friend Pantaleo Romanelli. For some reason, he seemed to have some insight into Italian vittles. He made sure we got wine from a region near where he lives in Pozzilli. But I am sorry I missed the rooster combs.
