A DINNER PARTY

IMG_7328One of the best things about my job is that sometimes I get to cook for my friends and help them throw magical parties. Last night, I helped my dear friend Irene with a small dinner party in Venice. Her home is so warm and inviting, you can’t help but want to stay forever. It really is one of my favorite places to cook.
