It’s been a long time since my family had dinner together, at least on an evening that wasn’t a holiday. With travel and living in different locations and work – life just gets in the way.
When my parents recently decided to visit me and my brother, I knew that a restaurant just wasn’t the place for us. I was craving them all to myself in a comfortable and familiar setting.
So I did what I always do when I decide to host people for dinner and tried out a brand new recipe (it’s a terrible idea but for some reason I keep doing it). Plus, I was looking for an opportunity to try out the bottle of Pinot Noir the lovely people at Mezzcorona had been so kind to send over – you remember them, don’t you?
