Unless you've living under a rock for the last couple of weeks, you will probably be aware that the world cup is going on. Yesterday afternoon me and a few friends from work (two of them Italian in fact) went to watch the Italy vs Slovakia match in the city centre. It was being shown on a big screen that had been put up on a little grassy area surrounded by office blocks and restaurants. It was a must win game for Italy and there was a fair bit of tension building between our Italian boys and the Slovakian fans. At half time Italy were losing by one goal, so we decided we needed something 'rustic' to perk us up. There was a deli nearby and we bought balls of mozzarella, black and green marinated olives, salami, bread and cup cakes. It was such a lovely sunny afternoon, and we drank beer from plastic cups and ate mandarin sorbet from little tubs. The only thing that could have made the afternoon better was that if Italy had won.
Food was all bought from Carluccio's Deli
