Delicious Italian to chill with
It was late in the afternoon and we were 'over' painting, leaking roofs and housework duties. And that was just us, the parents. The kids were fed up with homework, assignments and test preparation as well as us parents hovering to give them help and direction - even when it wasn't asked for. Nothing had been planned for dinner. We considered tossing a coin to decide who would trek to the shops for groceries but lack of motivation (and lack of strength to toss a coin) meant our brains defaulted to Plan B – let someone else cook and we'll pay for the privilege of 'chilling out'. Plan B took us to Fourno, an airy restaurant with delicious Italian cuisine.

We've dined at Fourno before and loved their pasta dishes. This time we decided to order three large pizzas to share. Judging from my previous article on Bondi Pizza and GPK, you may wonder if I am a pizza freak. Welllll, yes, and noooo. I love a tasty pizza dough with generous toppings but it's a coincidence that I've frequented some amazing pizza joints recently.

At Fourno, we started with Pesto Pizza which had a moist pesto sauce, pine nuts and parmesan cheese. This was a tasty beginning to our evening.

Our three large pizzas of BBQ Chicken Pizza, Meat Amour Pizza and the Fourno Special arrived and propped high on the pizza stands.

The BBQ Chicken Pizza was drizzled with BBQ sauce and the toppings of tomato, chicken, avocado, onion, mushrooms and mozzarella was delicious.

The Meat Amour, also drizzled with BBQ sauce and covered with tomato, ham, cabanossi, pepperoni, bacon, chicken and beef strips and mozzarella was full of flavour.

The Fourno Special, which we all especially loved, had cherry tomatoes, prosciutto, bocconcini, mushroom, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, oregano and mozzarella was a great combination of ingredients. We couldn't finish all three pizzas so the cheerful staff gave us a box for our pizzas to go home.

During our evening, we were also treated to a musical interlude. There was a large gathering of people at Fourno celebrating an 80th birthday. One of the relatives brought along his accordion - as you do. It was a good thing it wasn't a piano - it would be a bit tricky trying to get it through the doors. The accordion player was very good and it was a lovely end to our meal.
