Kate and William recently left the Big Apple, a visit packed with one turbocharged event after another.

The head-turning couple were wined and dined by New York’s finest.  (I bet they didn’t miss the interminable scones with Devonshire cream or humble cucumber-and-smoked-salmon sandwiches.)

Well, I was ready just in case William and Kate stopped by. I imagined a selfie of the 3 of us ~ Kate eating ravioli, William meticulously swabbing out sauce from the pot with a bit of bread, me holding the flowers they brought. Yep, all of us just having a jolly time of it in my kitchen.

That didn’t happen, of course. Things almost never happen the way I imagine them. But the ravioli did, thanks to my favorite Italian food blogger, ChgoJohn, and his bellissima Zia.

Here’s what William and Kate missed ~ Porcini Mushroom, Leek, and Goat Cheese Ravioli.  Get the recipe from the Bartolini kitchens website. 

In my house, the subject of dinner (past, present, or future) is part of the breakfast chatter.  I’m not totally brilliant in the kitchen, but I am an authority on eating.  Ascoltami ~ make these ravioli. Believe me, you don’t have to be super-skilled or even the star of your own cookbook.

These ravioli are flaming beautiful.

They comfort.

 And satisfy.

♥ Thanks, Bartolinis. ♥

  1. I’m thrilled that you made and enjoyed our ravioli, Toni. Because of your glowing review, I’m considering making another batch for the holidays. Thanks, too, for the kind words in your shout-out. Will and Kate don’t know what they missed. 😀


  2. Toni,
    One time Doug and Taly made us ravioli. (It was delightful to watch them cook together.) I think they created a butternut squash filling. It was the best. I’m going to put this one out there too, though. It sounds scrumptious. Scrumptious as the writing which was fun to savor too.
