Saying Goodbye to 2017 and Hello to A New Vintage! Welcome 2018!
There are so many things I am looking forward to in 2018 that are completely new to me in my life. I've never lived in Italy or the Old World before and I am extremely thrilled to move into our new house in Siena in a few weeks. We've been traveling since October 2017 -- leaving behind fires in Napa, arriving to Turks and Caicos after the worst hurricane in decades, passing through NYC with speed and excitement, to arriving to Italy as the season turned into rain and a mild winter. Finding a place to rent in the country as not as easy as it is in the U.S. and I am just thrilled that we finally found something that we love.
I look forward to cooking in my new home and trying to recreate some of the traditional recipes of this region as well as introduce some international dishes I love to our friends here. I look forward to finally speaking Italian really well -- which is still in the works -- and I look forward to just discovering every nook and cranny of this amazing place I am blessed to now call home. The greatest gift though is to finally live with family and to raise our son around his great grandparents, grandparents, aunts/uncles and cousins. It's a whole new world.
