A Season Finale of Love, Happiness and Food!

The big day is here! Debi and Gabriele renew their wedding vows in the small Tuscan town of Fiesole, Italy, with family and closest friends on Wednesday’s season finale of Extra Virgin. But there’s so much to do before the big event…

Octopus Is Not Quite Kosher

I am an unlikely person to share with you a delicious recipe for cooking octopus. You see—in case you missed an important detail about my culinary upbringing—I grew up in a Kosher home! My father is Jewish, and needless to say, his personality truly reflects his heritage and upbringing. A surgeon, my father Leonardo is strong, opinionated, heavy at times, [...]

After Ten Years, Love Is Still Sweet

Please don’t hate me for having the most romantic husband in the world. Yeah, listen up guys! The way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach. And Gabriele gets to it every time. I can’t tell you how deliriously happy a gal can get, returning to the place where she met her true love, [...]

That is, if you think in brewing terms. You see, this is the time to start thinking about preparing a delicious batch of Limoncello that will be ready in time for summer. Limoncello is probably the first hard alcohol I ever tried in my life, and my grandfather is the one responsible for [...]

Date Night, in Your Kitchen

It is nice to get out of your house and have an intimate date at a cozy restaurant. Your palate deserves something special, every now and then. Dinner and a movie (or a concert!) with my wife—yeah that’s the kind of date I like. Usually there is room for negotiations: “You want to watch a [...]

Where the Wild Things Are

I still remember it as if it was yesterday, even though it was 30 years ago!  In Italy, school runs six days a week—yes we attend classes on Saturday morning too, a real bummer. But Sunday is revered as the “Day of Rest”… unless you live in the country! Yes, if you lived in the Italian [...]
