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.
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.
