WEEK 141 MENU: November 29 - December 4, 2022

Slow Food: Saving our Food Heritage “Fast,” “Convenient,” “Save time,” all have become the mantras of modern life. “Time is money,” has become the foundation of how we live our lives today, both here in the US and Italy.  Many of the time-honored traditions of Italian regional cuisine are being lost and replaced by more time efficient and less expensive methods.

Venice: Warm Autumn Days and New Beginnings “L’Estate di San Martino”, Saint Martin’s Summer, is a time when warm weather returns, albeit briefly, before winter – our Indian Summer.  In Italy, it is a moment to bask in the joy of the harvest and wine making when the coffers are full of the bounty from spring and summer’s hard work in the fields.  It has come to symbolize a time of change and “new beginnings.” The new vintage is almost ready, which means barrels need to be fully emptied from last year’s wine to be cleaned for the new. Venice’s way of celebrating this time of year is one of the most festive, especially for children. Our menu this week...
