On August 18, 2016, I had the honor and pleasure to celebrate the release of A Queen In The Kitchen : Nonna Fernanda’s Authentic Northern Italian Cuisine With a Twist of Me. All the guests gathered in a stunning Los Angeles villa for an authentic Italian Aperitivo, Red Carpet, northern Italian dishes, book signing and a toast to the author, Bread Love And Dreams crew and friends that made this book possible.

A HUGE thanks to Maurizio “OttO” De Togni, Mirko “Mirakle” Urania, Loly Perlmutter, Eviali, Bertozzi America, Giuseppe Patane’ and to my muse Nonna Fernanda!
