Ciao! Okay, here’s how my mind works. Was encouraging a student in class last night to get creative when making pasta. I suggested incorporating Chocolate as a good example…well, actually I went on about a Goat Cheese Ravioli with Brown Butter Sauce & Chocolate Balsamic, but regardless…this morning I found myself reading an interesting article in the NYTimes about the ancient Jewish quarter in Pitigliano, a beautiful hill-top town in central/coastal Tuscany. One subject wrapped itself around the other, and bingo, CHOCOLATE KUGEL!!! It’s in the oven. but the aroma is everywhere. Magnifico! Ciao, e buon appetito.
