weekend in 3 (#3)

Hello from London! For this weeks weekend in 3 I have chosen a photographs that I think sum of the weekend (but stay tuned for more detailed posts!) Saturday morning was spent at the Courtauld Institute of Art at the Somerset House, “one of the finest small museums in the world” (see more of the collection by clicking here).

Sunday was spent in the lovely city of Cambridge, about an hours drive from London. It wasn’t a particularly sunny day, but we enjoyed walking the quiet streets, exploring the different colleges of the University of Cambridge, visiting King’s College Chapel for afternoon mass (known owes its existence to King Henry VI), stopping for tea and scones with jam and cream…

And of course, I can’t sum of the weekend without mentioning Carluccio’s restaurant. I’m not embarrassed to say that we went there twice, once in Canary Wharf, for dinner, and once in Cambridge, for lunch. The menu, 2 courses for 9.99 pounds, is incredibly delicious – the ravioli filled with ricotta and spinach, served with a butter and sage (see recipe here) and the passticcio di cioccolato, or chocolate bread and butter pudding, are to die for.

The entire weekend was wonderful, filled with good food, museum-visits, browsing of bookshops, Modern family episodes, lots of wine and nightcaps of Baileys, blueberry pancakes at The Diner, lounging at the Hilton in Canary Wharf, and more…
