The Fuori Carta (Off-menu) is our special recipe: a new story every month.
"Would you like a snack?" Clara offered. "Bernarda makes the most breathtaking cinnamon sponge cakes.'"
We took our afternoon snack like royalty, wolfing down everything the maid put before us. I had no idea about the protocol for this unfamiliar occasion and was not sure how to behave.
