I love any excuse to throw a dinner party. Saturday night we had nine of our friends come over to our house for dinner and for the viewing of an important soccer match, you know how serious Italians are with soccer. One of our friends is a talented graphic designer and and was kind enough to create a menu of the meal I was preparing for our guests, and how surprised I was when he gifted me with a personalized apron. It was the sweetest gift! The menu read, ‘Chef Brittny’, ‘Ristogourmet Pellegrini’, followed by the courses to be served, and ended with the team names of who would be facing off in the soccer game to follow.
