Dear <<First Name>>,
I don’t know why I was in a bit of a Dolce Vita mood this week…and short of a bit of ravishing in the Trevi fountain found myself baking biscotti, throwing together a “minestrone de primavera” and messing around with gnocchi instead. I also got enthusiastic about making pasta so that’s what we are doing on Friday…I better remember everything I was taught by the bionic arm grandmothers in Italy!!

I do like a good CNDP and was drinking a glass of the Domaine du Vieux Lazaret earlier today which reminded me to share this piece.
Week # 13 Menu & Wines
Like I said…..I was in a Dolce Vita mood so there is a souffle inspired by the brilliant Paul Vetri, a classic “minestrone de primavera” , a Tagliata with a Romanian spin and some gnocchi in a spring sauce with peas and lemon. To refresh the palate a lemon and basil sorbet and to finish an orange and amaretto tiramisu. Of course all your favourites on our a la carte menu available too. See this week’s menu here
