Whew!! I have had a whirlwind of appearances and events the past 4 days!! It is always so exciting for me to meet and work with so many talented people. At the Atlantic City food Festival- Guy Fieri, Robert Irvine and Morimoto himself-from the Food Network- were so inspiring to work with and plain fun as well!

I will be posting photos and memories from both events shortly.

It is also so nice to get chance to see all my fans and followers of The Basic Art of Italian Cooking in the Philadlephia, South Jersey area. I know a lot of you came to taste my new line of spices (Sapori D'Italia by The Basic Art of Italian Cooking by Maria Liberati ) and buy another supply of Tuscan Picnic -used to make all kinds of Tuscan recipes quickly and easily. They are tasty but health dishes that anyone can make but tastes like they were made by a professional chef. By the last day of the event we were sold out. For those of you that wanted to buy them you can buy at the website:

I will be back with more info and recipes . For those of you that missed my appearance on stage on Saturday at the event- here is a recipe for Insalata Sapori D'Italia
