I pretty much fell in love with Italy from day one, and lately I’ve really been missing my life there. In a place that changes little with the decades, each time I would go out, it often felt like a new experience because there was so much to see; even in the small little town I lived in.

A strawberry balsamic vinegar reduction as a sauce over steak was a popular dish at a local restaurant, near where I lived. My favorite is a simple combination of the two. You could easily serve these strawberries over a white cake or perhaps even a chocolate cake, but since it’s the summer lets do ice cream and be merry….
