Debi and Gabriele are in Florence, by the Arno River, where they kissed for the first time eleven years ago. To celebrate what they remember fondly as the launch of their relationship, they have planned a romantic dinner at a fancy restaurant. Gabriele heads home to make sure their girls are taken care of while Debi meets Robert for lunch and a little shopping. Unfortunately, Gabriele is held up in traffic on his way back to Florence and they miss their reservation. Debi is upset but she gets over it when Gabriele offers to cook her a special meal at home to make up for his mistake. Knowing that her husband's food is better then any restaurant, no matter how fancy, Debi readily agrees. Gabriele makes risotto with speck and cantaloupe, arugula salad with grilled calamari and as a surprise, zabaglione, Italian custard over fresh fruit. While Gabriele makes the dessert, Debi heads to the bedroom to freshen up for a little after dinner fun. Gabriele brings up the dessert but just as they are about to start the second, ever sexier, phase of their evening, the girls return home - ah life! It's never quite what you want it to be. But for Debi and Gabriele, it's always delicious.Read More

Debi, Gabriele and their girls have moved from Los Angeles to Brooklyn, NYC. There's tons of unpacking left to do but Debi is eager to show Gabriele her old neighborhood - hopefully he'll love it as much as she does. Getting out of the house turns out to be a great idea - they have fun learning to brew beer, they find a wonderful butcher and a fantastic corner store. While out, Debi and Gabriele buy the supplies for their first backyard barbecue and invite some new friends to join them. But, of course, this being Gabriele, the menu is ribs, sausages braised in beer and spices, potatoes grilled en cartoccio (in foil packets) and beet and pear salad with gorgonzola cheese - Super Tuscan by any standard.Read More

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
