The lavender martini (yes, cocktail, not a real martini, got it)--killer on an especially hot summer day at Esca (Middletown, CT) and fun to replicate at home

Finding a new favorite farm stand - Berruti's (G'bury, CT) - where I couldn't get enough of Montauk corn, native cauliflower, lettuce and tomatoes, white peaches, Mutsu apples, and I looked forward to swapping recipe ideas with "my farm stand guy"...now they're selling Christmas trees. I miss them already...

Making new gelato recipes--my two favorites were pignoli cookie and chocolate

Cevapi--it was new on me!

Discovering fantastic pizza in freakin' Sheboygan, Wisconsin of all places! Ever have bresaola on a pizza? A M A Z I N G! I flew to what (to me) felt like the middle of nowhere, and found myself working within walking distance of so many great restaurants, it was a good thing I did a lot of walking getting to and from all of that food! YOU ROCK, STEFANO! Second video on the left explains what makes it sooooooooooooooooooo special.
