New friends, old traditions.


Last week, my daughter Chiara and a group of her friends came to visit from London, Dublin, and Los Angeles. It was a full house! We sat around the table together daily, sharing stories, songs, food, and wine. The tradition of mealtime is about connection—the connection we have to our friends and family, to the farmers and artisans who contribute to each dish, and to the land from which it's produced. What a beautiful week!
