We share with you an historical discovery. What you see in the photo is an old 'tosta orzo'.
It is gone a bit rusty but it is probably 70 or 80 years old.
This special pan, with a turning mechanism inside, was used by rural families in Italy to roast their own barley on the open fire or the stove.
It is a lovely piece of history ... if you turn its handle you can almost hear the stories shared in front of the fire ... waiting to sip a smooth cup of caffè d'orzo before bedtime.
in this blog you will find some curiosities, updates and events ...so treat yourself to a lovely cup of Orzo & enjoy the reading!
