A Year in Dinners

    2016 was a year of extremes. It was one of the most turbulent years I've experienced and also one of the most beautiful. 

             People who know me well,  know I love dinner parties, particularly setting the table and especially outside. Last year was the year of meals, shared in various places from fields, to under porticos, beaches, porches, parking lots, to shepherd huts and masserias. Special Thank You to Messors for all the Italian picnics! I look forward to a 2017 filled with many more shared breakfasts, lunches and dinners, Happy New Year everyone!
