an italian cake of sorts...

Tonight we're attending a small reception for some visitors from the Domenico Cimarosa Conservatory in Avellino, Italy.  They've been here performing Baroque chamber music at the University's School of Music.  We've enjoyed several beautiful concerts this week, and are looking forward to celebrating with them before they leave.  I've decided to bring a very rustic version of the gorgeous Italian Foccacia Cake from the Spiaggia cookbook.  We sampled a bite (or two) last night, with a glass (or two) of Sicilian Nero D'avola.... the pairing wasn't right at all, but they were both so good on their own, that we managed to satiate ourselves nevertheless.  I'm still working the recipe a bit, but it's almost finished!
