In Newport Beach, California Organic Links to Umbria
Mille grazie, Karen and Michael, for joining in with Deirdre to host a most special evening of Umbrian rural food – highlighted by California organic goodness. Anne M., those strawberries from your farm added not just inviting color but indescribable juicy goodness to our tiramisu.
And your butternut squash – with sage and leeks – starred in a heavenly pasta dish.
And once again, cooking together the Umbrian rural goodness – then sharing it around the table – united family and friends (new ones, old ones), young cooks and older ones.
Thanks to our hosts, thanks to all the enthusiastic cooks and to all who joined in the feast: Karen and Michael, Steven, Deirdre and Peter, Andii, Deborah, Perci, Lorraine, Linda and Anne. M.
Umbria has come to Newport Beach: now time for Newport Beach to come to Umbria! Quando?
