Found a non beach spot to write the menus for the next few gigs. It was too hard to think of fall while on a white sandy beach. This spot is truffles and mushroom and pumpkin and lamb and….Do you have any fall flavor musts? I want to know!

When I leave a place I wonder when I will notice it’s impact in my personality and my plates. I hope I can bring each of you some taste of this piece of the world wherever it is I cook and you eat.

When left to my own devices (the bar is closed for siesta) I made up my own drink. It’s delicious! Grappa di moscato, a bit of lemon soda, a bit of tonic and the special ingredient - two slices of cactus fruit from Le Stelle B and B. Picked by the lovely uncle of @marynichole707

These little beauties are #culurgiones - they are kind of Sardinian perogies. Pure semolina pasta stuffed with potato, mint, a little olive oil and a tiny bit of garlic. I’m eating mine with grated #pecorino, grated #bottarga and butter. They are filling and delicious. #sardegna #sardu #pasta #allfivesenses #italy #islandlife #italianmyway

I found these beauties in a shop in Corsica, but had no way to bring them back on the boat. I want to find something similar and have a grappa party. Who is in? #cheflife #grappa #dreams #corsica #love

This dog! He is technically a Newfoundland but really he is a black lion. He is trained to save people at sea and I am totally in love with him!

I may life forever with only this cheese! It’s a fresh cheese with black truffles. The semolina bread and cannonau is also great #sardegna #lacostasmeralda #cheese #allfivesenses #italy #wine
