PrintFlorentine gelato We ate so much gelato in Italy! Italians love their Gelato and there are Gelato Universities everywhere. Their Gelato shops are like Starbucks in America, there’s one on every corner. On the Tuscan Cooking Class Tour, we were taught to make 2 desserts included in the 4 Course Feast. This is a great base recipe that can easily…


Winter Garden, Florence Jul 2016

Eat, Michelin Dining By July 28, 2016 No Comments

Buon Giorno! Winter Garden by Caino is located in The St. Regis Hotel in Florence. It was beautiful with an Old World flair with art sculptures and very large chandeliers adorning the cathedral ceiling. My favorite dish of the evening was the monk fish ravioli. The hand made pasta perfectly wrapped around each morsel was divine. The herb sauce was…


La Bottega De Buon Caffe, Florence- Jul 2016

As many restaurants as we’ve been to, we have never had these tastes before. It was very different which tantalized our taste buds and provoked curiosity. Can’t say we hated or loved it, but it was interesting to challenge our pallates. The grilled octopus was very good and perfectly cooked, not rubbery. The desserts I felt duplicated themselves, as the…

Au Revoir! We were not going to spend our last night in Paris without a bang, so we indulged at Le Cinq in the Four Seasons Hotel. Absolutely fabulous place! The food was sophisticated contemporary French cuisine and was phenomenal. They are the masters of creamy sauces. It’s only 1 of 2 restaurants rated 3 stars per Michelin standards. That’s…

PrintIpo Coconut Bread I ate so much Ipo Bread in Bora Bora that the Four Season’s Chef gave me their recipe. Every morning I would indulge myself with these little poofy pillows of coconut goodness. It’s measured in kg because I wanted to preserve the authenticity of the gift. But I did include a professional French Chef’s conversion chart we…


Dusek’s, Chicago- April 2016

I’m still curious as to why this place earned a recent Michelin star. The food is very good, but no better than other Chi restaurants. The Old Fashioned donut was thick, dense and dough rather flavorless. My Salmon Bene was the best I ever had in flavor & with the most perfectly poached eggs. Mike’s burger was delicious but not…


Bouchon, Yountville- Dec 2015

We unfortunately had no luck obtaining reservations to the famous French Laundry. We did luckily get into its sister restaurant, Bouchon. The service is outstanding here and its location in Yountville is super cute. I felt as if we drove into a charming story book town. The trees and buildings still have festive Christmas lights yet it was so serene….
