What is the best meal you’ve ever had?
Oh, there have been many! But on our most recent trip to Italy, we had been recommended to a restaurant on the coast near Brindisi called Miramare di Michele; unpretentious and full of families and general hubbub and very relaxed service. With a platter of Crudo Mare - the seafood so fresh and just opened to order; all raw on a tray of ice; prawns; mussels; squid; clams; oysters and scallops accompanied by a bottle of extra virgin olive oil and a lemon - and it was perfection. Followed by caserecce with vongole and mussels and tiny tomatoes and trofie with gamberetti, the very red small prawns on a tomato base; food of such flavour and freshness. I will never forget it. -MB
