American Dinner

One of my favorite evenings of our whole trip was Wednesday night, when I made dinner for Federico and some of his friends. I had Nonna's kitchen all to myself, and my Sous chef Brad to help. It was a school night, and they have TONS of studying to do each day, but we had a nice turnout! What a great group of Italian young people. They all spoke a little English, and were SO friendly, polite, appreciative and FUN!

Let's start with the food! We had some simple antipasti, then TWO huge pans of my Mac and Cheese (4 lbs of cheddar I brought and 4 lbs. of pasta), fennel-orange salad, Caprese salad, Fede's favorite Cream cheese Brownies, and some wonderful pastries and an apple tart brought by some of the very thoughtful students.

Conversation was lively, in two languages, and the kids were very open, curious, and engaged. It was a delightful evening for us to get to know Federico's charming friends.

What a fun night and those kids are adorable! That mac and cheese looks incredible. I would just want to grab a fork and that whole pan and eat away!
