It’s not every day that one of your favorite chefs prepares for you a recipe that you created.
Nor is it every day that your recipe is found on the menu of a magnificent 5 star Italian restaurant,
or that you get to have dinner for 5 of your closest friends and family at said restaurant. But sometimes just sometimes these things do happen.
I’m not going to lie when I entered the Sassi Heritage recipe contest I wanted to win. So I studied the menu and thought about recipes that would mirror what they do at Sassi; which is southern Italian food that is fresh and uncomplicated.
I guess it worked because the next thing I knew I was seated at an enormous wood table, with my mom and husband on either side, being served copious amounts of delicious Italian food including my lamb stew.
kept arriving at our table until we finally couldn’t eat anymore.
And then dessert was delivered.
All in all it was a magical night filled with family, food and friends. Thank you to Chef Nicosia & Sassi for selecting & including my lamb dish on the new spring menu!
