Off to the Mediterranean

I know, I know. I’ve been remiss but I have been so busy I could not keep up.  Mea culpa.

I am about to leave on a National Geographic Cruise of Islands in the Mediterranean. I will be doing cooking demos on the ship, market walks and cheese and salumi tastings with the guests. This is the first break from writing for my new book. I guess I forgot to mention that huge new project. A History of California Cuisine , for University of California Press.  I have been intervewing people like mad . Only 100 more to go.

 I need to take some time off to think and digest all the info.  And maybe eat a few arancini in  Palermo, Brin d’Amour in Corsica, lamb and carta di musica in Sardinia  and Tapas in Spain. See you soon.
