Gabriele and Debi have been living in New York for a while now and Gabriele is eager to get his name known in the culinary circles of the City.

Gabriele has to work very hard to please such expert eaters but he pulls it off with gusto and everyone loves the meal. Gabriele has definitely announced his presence. Read More

San Fran Sweet Treats

San Francisco has a well-earned reputation as a foodie paradise, so restaurants here have to work twice as hard to stand out. We found three that do, beginning with Craftsman & Wolves where chef William Werner's attention to detail creates edible works of art like the flaky, croissant-inspired Chocolate Stack, the Caramel Cube Cake that is actually spray-painted with pure chocolate, and the creamy, frothy Sipping Caramel. At Ice Cream Bar owner Juliet Pries has crossed an old-timey soda fountain (complete with soda jerk) and flavor-forward creations, like the peppery Tiny Bubbles Float, the fruity Tropical Split, and the butterscotchy (and aptly-named) Too Good To Be True Milkshake. Finally we visit bean-to-bar chocolate makers Dandelion Chocolate, where customers can see their chocolate created from start to finish, then sample it in favorites like the Peanut Butter And Jelly Ganache Sandwich.Read More

A Tuscan Remedy

Gabriele and Debi are in the city for a stroll along a riverside park. As they look out over the Hudson they see majestic boats and Debi suggests that for their 11th wedding anniversary, which is coming up soon, they take a romantic sunset sail - Gabriele loves the idea. But later, back at home, Gabriele has fallen ill and Debi has to nurse him to health before they can take their cruise. First, she makes him some healthy juice. Then, with a fresh cut of beef that they've just bought, Debi makes Gabriele a traditional Tuscan broth - just like his nonna Lola used to make. Finally, with the meat from the broth and other ingredients, Debi makes Lesso Rifatto, a hearty Tuscan stew much beloved in Italy. The fortifying effects of this super Tuscan food works and the following morning Gabriele is up before Debi preparing for their boat trip with a picnic of pears and pecorino cheese, melon and prosciutto, amaretto cookies and bottle prosecco to toast their anniversary - what a romantic sail it is!Read More
