Crab candy in Venice

masanete

Remember the “bacon candy” at Lou’s excellent wine bar Lou on Vine in Los Angeles?

I couldn’t help but think of those sweet nuggets when my friends and I were served masanete col coral last night in Venice terra firma (mainland Venice): it’s the time of year when the lagoon’s she crabs have already mated and they are full of sweet roe (called coral because of their bright orange color).

Posting in a hurry from the Frankfurt airport this early morning but have so much to tell about my trip…

Now I just can’t wait to wrap my arms around those beautiful ladies of mine back in Texas.

See you on the other side…
