Bacon in Bon Appetit (11/07)

In the November issue of Bon Appetit… A recipe for Radicchio Lasagna with Pancetta from Osteria Ca’ D’Oro Alla Vedova, a wine bar in Venice, Italy.

Virginia is for Wine and Bacon Lovers

I recently spent a rare weekend on the East Coast, and an even rarer day in Virginia.   My friend Carole and I started the day at 8 am (a time of day I don’t often experience on a Saturday, no matter what time zone I’m in) with a trip […]
