As I am sure you guys are aware, Vruchi and I have had a pretty big year. We left our apartment in Sydney, moved countries and started a new life in London, looking to travel and explore as many cities as possible. One thing that ended up taking a back seat as a result of this has been the food section of 100 autumns. It is not because we haven’t been cooking or trying new recipes but we both struggled to give this section meaning, compared to our travel section. But then it hit us, we travel around all these cities and try all these amazing foods, but we never do anything more than just take photos. So we have decided that this section of the blog will be about capturing that one dish in each city that captured our hearts and represented that city for us. As we visit each city, we note down a signature dish and then endeavour to try making this dish at home. Some of the dishes we will nail. Most, we probably won’t. But one thing is for sure, we will take lots of photos and share many laughs along the way. We began with Rome, the first city we visited since moving to London. For us, nothing signifies Rome more than classic Roman pizza. We decided to make the base itself from scratch. After spending the morning preparing the dough, we left it to set throughout the afternoon. In the evening, we called our good friends Neeraj and Deepti who helped us with our toppings. We capped of the night with a movie and some homemade mocktails, as we enjoyed the company of good friends and, what turned out to be, good pizza!
