simple is good, i keep forgetting. i suppose i can forgo good asian food for six months for this (but ask me again in a few weeks): on wednesday we went to osteria veglio up in the hills just outside la morra to send off a friend (you will be missed, A). piedmont is breathtaking this time of year -- i'd forgotten that also. i realize vitello tonnato's not usually the most photogenic dish, even at its most pristine, and i'm sure a quarter-eaten portion may not look all that appealing. i tell you this, however, this is surf'n'turf at its finest. the second dish is veglio's version of pasta with pesto -- with zucchini and potato and a garlic-free pesto. squisito.
