Festa, food, friends and fresh ricotta! Let the cooking begin. My good friend, Felix (see his great food blog over there on the right) and I are hosting our first ‘SlowFood’ event – TomatoFest 08!  We spent the afternoon preparing for tomorrow’s event – and even tried our hand at making fresh ricotta (SIMPLE to make! Yes, recipe will be posted in the week ahead!) Menu is below – check back in the weeks ahead for recipes…buon appetito! Michele

  1. I wish we had been there to share in the festa!! It sounds yummy and so much fun!!! What a GREAT menu!!!!! YUM!!

  2. I would fathom to say “you are marv with your recipes, writing and photos.” Enveloping myself in your Blog whisks me to Italy in my mind. I thank you.
