THE BRUNETTIS AND DUNKING BISCOTTI


Thanks to Peter at Detectives Beyond Borders for steering me to this post about biscotti dunking at:




Donna Leon cleverly emphasises the social gulf between Paola and Guido by their attitude to dunking in the quoted passage taken from the first Brunetti mystery Death at la Fenice.

I have the suspicion that although Paola's English nanny might have stopped her dunking in front of her parents, when back in her own room I am sure nanny dunked her biscotti in her cup of English tea.

That's a thought. Thanks for your note. A nice image of Piazza San Marco.

Your welcome Simona, your site is so useful for those of us trying to pretend that we can speak a bit of Italian.
