Our first night in New York City on this recent trip was spent on the Upper East Side. We were there for the annual meeting of an Italian Renaissance studies society which my sweetie supports, and the event ended with wine and hors d’oeuvres but not a full meal. We have enjoyed several restaurants in the area in past years after this meeting: Bella Blu, Barbaresco, Caravaggio…but we always like to try something different when in town. And given we had reservations for another Italian restaurant the following evening, we wanted to go for a different cuisine for this night.

She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
