A Perfect Reunion in San Francisco
Cooking a feast, sharing a feast is always the best link, the perfect way to celebrate. Our dinner in San Francisco was two celebrations: host Charlie’s birthday and a celebration of nearly fifty years of friendship for us University of Santa Clara women! SCU friend Yvonne summed it up: “a perfect reunion. On to next year…” And this same group has already booked for February, 2016! I hope Pino can come back again!
He and our son Mattia (with his lovely companion, Radha) joined the Santa Clara cooking group just in time for tiramisu all together.
Hard to match this one: old friends and family united over an Umbrian dinner, in a magical city.
