I’m in Italy on the coast by the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea. This is truly one of my favorite places in the world. We recently went for a wonderful lunch in Portofino. You all know how I love, love, LOVE, clean, simple and beautiful food. Well this lunch was to die for. The owner of the spot was Gerardo. He made all the food himself and he showed us the ingredients before he prepared them. He was just wonderful and the food was spectacular! What a treat to see and experience someone that just LOVES what he does. You could taste every bit of his joy in the food.
