A relaxing New Year Celebration as I like it..filled with music and food ..food and music… in the kitchen on TV -the Concerto for Capodanno (New Year’s Concert) from Venice from the Teatro de la Fenice to serenade us as we prepared the food for today’s dinner and then in the dining room on TV- the Concerto for Capodanno from Vienna, Austria that entertained us as we supped on our New Year’s Pranzo…it doesn’t get better than that..
And as always… lots of chocolate to get us through the day as visitors drop by after dinner to bring New Year’s Wishes but also for some espresso, sweets, toasts with the bubbly…. From locally produced chocolate torrone, to gianduia torrone, to a Panettone dessert I make using leftover Panettone but filled with chocolate.
But the Raditzky’s March signals the end of another New Year’s Day concert, and the start of another New Year of great food, recipes and places to discover.
Here is one of my chocolate recipes ..simple but delicious..one of my Holiday favorites …. A Chocolate Salami..
