Do you think that Liz and Richard ate the focaccia?

In 1967 Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton got engaged right here.....In Portofino!! This weekend we went to the glamorous stomping ground of the rich and famous including Grace Kelly, the Duke of Windsor, Clark Gable, Ingrid Bergman, etc. etc. etc. This post card perfect tiny resort town on the Italian Rivera is bursting at the seems with charm. It's been irresistible to the jet set since the 1940's and continues to grow in popularity every year. Every yacht here is bigger then the one before and every shop here is more expensive than the one before, but how can you resist splurging when your starring at Dolce and Gabbana’s house and gorgeous black yacht? (picture below).

Portofino is in Liguria and is famous for it's Pesto and Focaccia. Not necessarily together. The focaccia here melts in your mouth like a salty buttery warm piece of cake that you always have to have a second piece of. Do you think that Liz and Richard ate the focaccia?
