Parmigiano Reggianno and Prosciutto di Parma at a cocktail party at the Torrechiara castle in Parma, Italy. The view of the Po Valley was amazing and sharing a wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano with many good friends was even better.
My current drink of choice:
Sauvignon Blanc from Page Mill Winery - let's drink local :-)
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Planked salmon topped with carmelized fennel.

Any kind of risotto. The first dish I ate in Milan and the meal I prepare when I need to chill out.
