Where else in the world but Venice can you wade around in wellies with murky water tantalisingly close to your knees and yet still feel you're in a historic and magical town?

No beating about the bush, this is a fine snack. Excellent, taste, surprisingly filling. Just go down there and buy one.

It may look terrible, but there's enough taste in there to put you on that Tuscan hill staring out over the Italian lakes (creative licence used with geography).

My name is Kay and I'm a wine snob.

It's official, after a wine tasting trip to Lake Garda in Italy, my new-found knowledge and being spoilt with fine wines has turned me into a cork dork, grape geek, fully fledged wine snob.

And I hate wine snobs. Those pretentious know-it-alls who use elaborate terminology at dinner parties.
