Best Junior League Cookbooks?

I own at least 100+ Junior League Cookbooks and my hands down favorite is Heart & Soul from the Junior League of Memphis. The Boursin Potatoes and Caramel Cake are worth the price of the book!

Patricia Wells vs. Susan Loomis Cooking School?

I am planning a 2011 trip to France and would like to spend the first week in a cooking school. Just wondering if any of you have any opinions on Patrica Wells or Susan Hermann Loomis' cooking schools. I do not speak French, so these two options appealed to me.

Restaurant for Birthday Celebration in Venice

We have never been to Venice before, so we would like to plan a wonderful evening for him. I don't know how adventurous he is, but he loves delicious food. We are hoping to find a restaurant that has divine food and excellent service. Do you have any ideas?

Restaurant for Birthday Celebration in Venice

We are travelling to Italy next week and we will be celebrating my son's 17th birthday in Venice on the 19th. He's your typical teenager butlike his parents, he's enjoyed wonderful restaurants like French Laundry, Gary Danko, Le Bernardin, and Daniel in the States. He's expecting "an experience" for his birthday, so does anyone have recommendations for a fabulous evening? I'm thinking a gondola ride to restaurant would be a fun way to start the birthday evening..., but I'm so confused about where to have a great meal in Venice!
