Little Rewards.


You’ve made it through the first week of 2015!  You’ve probably applied serious determination, will power and  purity of human spirit to your new year’s resolution of choice (that may or may not include the omission of certain food items and/or, but not limited to, any fun from your diet) 

You need to reward this act of sheer courage!

Fusilli, with house-made pancetta, duck brodo, and tuscan kale. Fusilli duck

Let’s face it, whatever your new year’s resolution was, it all boils down to eating and living better in 2015.

-I’d say this is a pretty good ay to eat and live.

Also today:

Pappardelle, alla Bolognese.

Torchietti, with peppers, olives, chilis and bread crumbs
