I’m currently obsessed with a restaurant in Salt Lake City called The Copper Onion. I’m actually so obsessed with this place that it could just be my favorite restaurant in the US right now. If it’s not, cause we’ll I’d have to think long and hard about all the restaurants I’ve been too and looking […]

Asparagus multicolor

Last week was particularly lovely and trying. I think I managed to cover all of the earth’s major climatic zones except for the extreme cold of the arctic circle and the extreme heat of the Sahara desert. In just week I visited Milan, New York, Salt Lake City, San Diego, and Santo Domingo. I’m sure […]

Closing Ceremony

THE UNIVERSE ALIGNED! (Praise the Lord, Hallelujah).

My husband loves to bake. But heaven forbid he deviate from a pre-established recipe. To be honest he’s like that when cooking, but he’s even more stringent when baking.

The first time I made oysters was about 5 years ago. I was moving into my 3rd or maybe 4th apartment in the 3 years I had been living in Milan. By that time I had accumulated massive amounts of stuff. But at least I was getting good at this moving thing. So instead of […]

artichoke

  This month I’m in a love and artichoke state of mind. Love because I’m thinking about Valentine’s day which is fast approaching. Artichokes just because it seems to be my favorite ingredient right now. Perhaps because I recently discovered through Reader’s Digest that many people consider artichokes an aphrodisiac.

Many many moons ago I was walking down the streets of Pescara with one of my seemingly many Italian boyfriends, Alberto. We stopped to admire the store front of a gorgeous specialty food store.
