COF2011 Blog brigade in Friuli. Once again I had another amazing meal with friend and colleague Carmen Castorina and I promise a fun and extravagant post (Thanks, Joe!).
As well, another unforgettable session with Italian Hall of Famer, Filippo Di Belardino, a dear friend for 30 years. Great food and wine and great quotes a comin’ (Thanks, Pippo!).
And wine, from crazy wonderful Timorasso whites to Cesanese reds, a little Lafite thrown in for balance (who can ever refuse Lafite?) and vintage ports to mind boggling amari and a cast of wine cognoscenti that really make me gear up much more than normal.

Wish me luck (and no ice) later on and hopefully I will escape from NY and this latest snow storm. If not, I will settle in, grab me a bottle of whatever is red and willing and wait it out.
