Earlier this spring, in March, we enjoyed the pleasure of meeting the proprietor and winemaker of the Piedmontese winery, Scagliola. Their wines are beautiful, elegant and fresh.
Jeff's Cotechino sausage was a hit and the best sausage I think he has ever made!
Everyone enjoyed themselves, including our parents.
The delicious mackerel was served with littlenecks and a spring vegetable ragou.
I made a Piedmontese specialty fennel and black pepper grissini, sprinkled generously with salt.
The dessert featured my most favorite of fruits--besides passionfruit, the Bergamot orange. I made a semifreddo with candied Bergamot orange and mocha sauce, encrusted in hazelnut meringue crisps.
The plating line in the kitchen...
Jeff slicing the richly braised beef and Jamie plating spring vegetables.

At lunch, a beautiful plate of roast Delicata squash and parsnips brightened with herbs, frisee and beet vinaigrette.
The always satisfying steak tartar.
A hearty and nutritious side of Tuscan kale.
Pistachio Pithiviers, before they go into the oven...
Delicate saffron poached pears.

First thing every morning, Jeff makes pasta for the day. It's a beautiful process to watch and quite delicious to eat!
