The Year Ahead in Pasta

Like most people, I wonder: Will Brad & Jen get back together?  But while we’re waiting–I mean, it’s not up to us, they need their time and space, it’s a big decision what with Angelina and the brood–what else is happening?

In NYC, we’ll see Jonathan Benno open his new restaurant.

Elsewhere, you can bank on ingredients from Senegal, Brazil, Cambodia, and Iraq appearing in supermarket aisles.  The dollar plummets, big buyers will turn to low-priced stuff to sell to eager consumers.

Here on the home front, it’s pasta.  For example, a friend from Udine sent me photos of his 90-year old mother-in-law making 500 Cappelletti.  So much for food trends.  Does that look like the most delicious thing you have ever seen?  Basta cosi!
