As the summer comes to an end, the seasonal fruit du jour would be the Italian Blood Orange. It is my favorite to eat, drink and cook with. And with that I have concocted a special martini and food pairing that not only pays tribute to the flavor of the month, the blood orange but also to Italy’s most famous director, Federico Fellini.
So I work for a magazine and I get to meet new people all the time. Great! Love it! In the summer I got the change to meet Serena Palumbo at the Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival. What a petite doll and such a fashionista...I knew we would get along. This dish is an amazing starter especially for this petit bohemian that likes food but doesn't want a growing waistline. The dish is gourmet and healthy and could even be the beginnings to a detox diet because of the components.
