A Few Winter Foods...

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.

Making Pasta

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

A motor operated Italian machine helps quicken the process of rolling out the dough.

Sheets ready to shape.

Making ravioli...

Oxtail and goat cheese ravioli is the final product.

Some of the pasta cut in to pappardelle.

Here is the pappardelle with Bolognese sauce, yum!
