and cooler temperatures.  Still, that is polenta on top of the sauerkraut.

A large family dinner at the house in Vigo di Fassa.  Beautiful people in a beautiful setting.

Nonna’s Beef goulash and polenta… you have no idea how good this is.

I will never eat Boar’s Head Genoa salami again.

What is a meal without the chick pea course?

Cake, Papoo’s homemade grappa, and the limited production dessert wine that makes you cry.
