Oct 26 – Sampling in Sorrento

Today we signed up for a tour we've never done before, called "A Taste of Sorrento" – basically, a good excuse to sample some of the wonderful food and drink that the area's famous for.

Fortunately the weather was much better than a couple of days ago, and it was a gloriously sunny day. We went to a local farm, where they showed us how to make mozzarella (surprisingly easy), took us round their olive oil press (we were lucky enough to be there during the olive harvest), gave us some salami (then showed us the enormous pigs that were about to be the next batch of salami), and gave us some wine to taste (even at the indecent hour of 10 o'clock in the morning, it tasted pretty good).
