What we ate for Christmas as a family in mainland Venice
I adored this! So glad to read that you are on the mend. The menu looks terrific. We started growing radicchio in earnest this winter and we are now enjoying it almost every day so loved seeing it mentioned in your menu. Take care and looking forward to reading the next newsletter in February. Paul
Dearest Sinù, I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling so much better now. Your Christmas menu sounds scrumptious, yes please on the white lasagna with radicchio - yum - and I'm thrilled that you also like Venchi chocolate, their dark chocolate is my favorite of all, and I don't care how much it gets criticized for being sold on such a large scale. Your book recommendations, as always, sound so good, though the movie Green Sea will be first on my list - how intriguing to lose one's memory but not one's ability to cook. Do take care of yourself cara e spero di rivederci presto, xo
It was, as ever, lovely to spend time with you. Xx
So glad to read another marvelous edition of your newsletter, Sinù, and to learn that you’re recovering well from your back injury. Friendship, wine with friends and beautiful curated meals are the best medicine!
That Christmas meal sounds amazing! I’d also love the recipe for the lasagna--and for the artichoke dish as well--if you care to share them. Actually it all sounds delicious! Looking forward to your next newsletter! Take good care of yourself.
I am so sorry to hear about your health issues, but that you have been recovering nicely and mostly pain free for a couple weeks now is such a wonderful thing to read And right before digging into the beautiful photos and food of your holiday, what could be better. 2022 was pretty awful for my health as well and I am still struggling, but I hope I will join your path towards mending soon. Take very good care of yourself, do all the things you enjoy and have been missing after that year! Sending you a gentle hug and all my support X
Oh yeah! This is great foodie encouragement and most importantly, you are back with healing and health.
Take all the time you need.
Sinu, I’m sorry to hear about your injury but very glad you’re pain-free, finally. You’re newsletter really cheered me. The white lasagna sounds superb!! (Are you willing to part with the recipe?)
How could I be bored with your fun & generous family. “I’ll be back” as Arnie said. Such a memorable couple of months
I am happy to hear you are feeling better. I didn’t know about all that was going on. I know how you feel though. I’ve been out of things lately. I’m not going to quit on the newsletter, I don’t want to let my friends down, but it’s been more difficult the last few weeks. Please keep getting better. You health, and your family are the most important thing you can have in life. Let’s keep in contact.
So glad to hear you are on the mend. Sinù! Your lasagne and holiday celebration is wonderful. Glad to ‘see’ you and wishing terrific year ahead!
I am so glad to hear you are feeling better! I am planning on seeing you in real life when we are finally settled in Venice. (Spring? 🤞)
So glad to hear you’re feeling better, and what a lovely Christmas menu!
Sounds delicious! Even though, intellectually, I know I wouldn't care for the seafood dishes, the way you describe everything makes me feel I'm missing out.
Glad to hear you're feeling better!
Glad you're starting to feel better Sinù. Great that you're choosing to reclaim all the joy that you've missed out on.
I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better! Christmas dinner sounds amazing, memories are always better remembered when written down. The white lasagna looks scrumptious.
