Adam turns to Candice with a lost expression on his face, "Candice, what should we cook today…" Candice looks at Adam with a knowing smile and says, "Bolognese of course…" "Bolognese?" Adam asks with a dumbfounded expression… "Adam, look around, what do you see?" Adam looks around their small kitchen, trying to ascertain Candice's meaning. "I see..." Candice grabs Adam's face. "WHAT DO YOU SEE!!"
The cobblestones of the road, the Colosseum in the distance, the espresso in his hand. Adam turns to Candice, "What the...." "Rome, Adam, Rome!" Adam looks around, breathing in the rich Italian air. "Candice, how the heck did we get to..." Candice shooshes Adam. "Just drink your espresso and walk with me."
Adam follows Candice down a narrow alleyway, the smell of pizza and pasta fill the air. They go down a narrow staircase and look into a small, classic Italian restaurant. They see two huge cheese wheels. Adam turns to Candice, "What are we doing here..." Candice shooshes Adam and points to the cheese wheels. "Look Adam... Look..." The waiter proceeds to take out a torch and starts melting the cheese wheel before he grabs some spaghetti bolognese and chucks it into the center. The melted cheese fuses perfectly with the pasta and sauce, before it's put on a plate in front of Adam. "Holy... " Adam stares with wonder. He picks up his fork, dipping it into the magical saucy cheese pasta, his eyes widening with eagerness as he's about to put it into his mouth when...
"Bolognese of course, Adam. Bolognese." Adam blinks and see's that they're back in their little kitchen. "What the hell, Candice..." "I took you on a spiritual cheese journey, Adam. But enough about that, let's do this."
