room ten

room ten garden viewroom with a view flowerssaturday morning breakfast @ augustus

This weekend we stayed at Villa Augustus, in a water tower room on the third floor with a beautiful view. Looking out from the hotelroom windows, we could see the major rivers of Dordrecht. The room was colorful, comfortable and homely and we would have loved to stay all week.
Delicious food, sleep late and eat breakfast in the hotel room, what bliss! We really enjoyed every single minute!

An italian wood & word recipe for the kitchen.
The recipe is for another 'chef' and will leave our kitchen today.
However tonight we will have penne with salsa di pomodoro for dinner I figured.

I have to go shopping for cherry tomatoes and missing ingredients...

My favorite Italian cookbook is La nonna La cucina La vita by Larissa Bertonasco and not only for the good food!

dordrechts museum

On Wednesday we visited the Dordrechts Museum.
The museum garden itself is oh so beautiful! During late summer evenings the garden is an outdoor cinema.
After seeing the art of the famous old masters of Dordrecht, I was caught by these artworks.
A few of my personal highlights of the museum collection are;
Flower still life with dead hare - Joris Ponse (thát fly...)
Duck - Jan Roeland
Colorado Blvd - Hans Broek
I.O.U.A. poem - Ton Kraayeveld
The museum is within walking distance of Villa Augustus and one of the jewels of the old town.
