Theme Day - CHANGE: Raw Ingredients
This fine bottle of bubbly and meal is in celebration of the new year, a new decade and my wedding anniversary. Plus, it also clearly demonstrates real CHANGE, as in our City Daily Photo Theme for January 1, 2010. Taken from the cookbook Giada's Kitchen - New Italian Favorites, this inventive and entertaining (and gorgeous) chef, Giada De Laurentiis features page after page of the best regional food on earth...Italian! This meal was accompanied by glasses of Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut Champagne, a brilliant combination if I do say so. Starting from fresh raw ingredients, including a half pound of shrimp (yummm!), everything was changed as if by magic into an entree Giada calls Linguine Shrimp and Lemon Oil. The main course and oh-so-delicious salad were made by my very own Head Chef, the exquisite Mrs. Tampa DP in celebration of the new year and 28 years of marriage. Every morsel of this meal, and every drop of champagne, was magnifique!
