“I just want more of her.” A wonderful piece on the late lamented food writer, Laurie Colwin.

Virtual Piemonte


Yes, Piemonte really does look like this. This picture was taken on the grounds of the historic Fontana Fredda winery. The building is the house King Vittorio Emmanuel (sorry if that’s mispelled) built for his mistress, La Rosina, and their children. They made beautiful music, and beautiful wine, together. (Eventually, he even married her. She became a Duchess and their children were legitimized although not allowed to be king or anything, which was just as well since Italy became a Republic and all the royal real estate got taken over by the state.)
