Six years have gone by and my chef coats have only rarely been used. A few private events, some wonderful dinners in our cellar in Petroio and now and then a few cooking lessons, but not much more than that. And that is painful for someone who loved their job as much as I did.
It took time but now it's time to pull them all out!
I will be away from Petroio physically (iPhones allow me to run almost everything from here and my two wonderful interns, Gian Luigi and Pamela Lenzi, help with the holding down of the fort!) for the next two and a half months. I will be living in the North West promoting our wines by collaborating in some of the finest restaurants in Portland and offering special wine dinners where I will also be doing the cooking. This will of course give me the opportunity to breath and live again the real life of a kitchen and I could not be more excited…..
