I know very few of us have the time these days to cook elaborate meals. Certainly food shopping can be expensive as well. So I decided to come up with a section offering recipes for everyday living–using ingredients that are more or less easily available.


The kitchen is truly the heart of the home. Many of my best memories are with loved ones gathered around the kitchen table. So we'd like to bring back the tradition of cooking at home, sitting with friends and family to prep, eat, and talk. It doesn't matter whether you live alone or with roommates, sitting down to enjoy food really gives you respect for both food, family, and your health. It's creative, it's spiritually and physically nourishing, and it's a lot of fun.

Del Cambio

Torino, Italy

An emblem of culture in Turin, its halls have seen the comings and goings of renowned men and women in history. Its salons have known the best: from Cavour to Casanova, Puccini to Balzac, Nietzsche, Verdi, Marinetti, D'Annunzio, the Agnellis, and the writer Mario Soldati as well as  Eleonora Duse, Maria Callas and Audrey Hepburn among others.


Resurrected, the Michelin starred restaurant in Turin thrives under Chef Baronetto. Del Cambio is history and modernity infused, both in food and architecture.

Las Vegas, Nevada 

Chef Chris Santos and Tao Group attempt to replicate the success of New York's Beauty & Essex in Vegas.

But do the food and service of B&E LV live up to the high standards set by the East Coast original? Find out.
