A Simple Day With Friends 10/8/2015
We began the day at Cucina Enotica in Newport Center... We wanted to introduce Brian to "infusions"!
Did You Know? - Infusion is the process of extracting chemical compounds or flavors from plant material in a solvent such as water, oil or alcohol, by allowing the material to remain suspended in the solvent over time (a process often called steeping). An infusion is also the name for the resultant liquid. The process of infusion is distinct from decoction, which involves boiling the plant material, or percolation, in which the water passes through the material (as in a coffeemaker).
The infusion was a bit stiff
We tried about five different drinks!
"Paul! Was the straw supposed to melt?"
We forgot to tell Brian that it was NOT a strawberry... It was a pepper!

Brian got the world largest hamburger!
