This summer the second installment of the next Alpine Cooking book brought me back to Italy with camera in had as we hit the road for the first set of many nexts. Now, we land at fall, and I am back again. I spend nearly half of my year on the road, and call NYC home, but the range of travel offices takes the cake when it comes to being productive on the road. Needless to say my favorite hotel desk of 2022 was here deep in the sleepy mountains in Piedmonte in a village that will remain unnamed for another year until our book releases… stay tuned!
