Today, I wanted to share more about myself
and my life before I get to my recipe. I have
worked hard to establish a great network
here in Italy. I am very passionate about
Italy and of course I am passionate about
food! If I make a recommendation, it is based
on my very own personal experience at the
villa, market or restaurant. If you have
visited my Food For Love website, you will
see my motto: Eat Your Emotions!! I find food
to be a very emotional experience from the
initial inspiration of the dish, to the preparation,
the setting, the company...on to the very last bite.
So my wife Valeria and I went to Grosetto for
one night. We have been many times and thought
I'd share a few pictures from this trip.
I won't comment on each picture as a picture
speaks a thousand words.
Enjoy a day in my life and the recipe!
The restaurant: Gli Attortellati
My beautiful wife...
She gave me fresh zucchini, tomatoes and basil
to take home. The fresh tomatoes and basil I
used in my Fabiolous Tuesday recipe!
