If you follow along on Instagram Stories than you probably saw sneak peeks from my shoot of this spectacular (and easy!) dessert last week. It’s my absolute favorite dessert and yet one of the healthiest I make! I’m finally sharing it all with you at 💋 Please let me know if you try it! I’m betting you’ll swoon just as much as I did when I took my first bite || #sedbona #food52

Tonight I'm learning about (& sampling!) authentic Italian ingredients at the first True Italian Taste masterclass at @italianexpo and I can't wait! One of the most delicious moments of my life was touring a small parmigiano-reggiano factory in Parma last fall. It's my absolute favorite cheese and seeing it's creation up-close was one of the happiest moments of my life.
All those aisles of beautiful cheese... You can practically see the unbridled joy on my face.

The experience gave me a whole new appreciation for authentic parmigiano-reggiano -- I never go without a wedge or two in my fridge and I'm always experimenting with new ways to cook with it. I'm hoping tonight will bring me back to that warm October morning in Parma with some of the most delicious cheese I've ever sampled in my life...(dress link available here 👉🏻 ), 📷: @eatandbefull || #liketkit #trueitaliantaste #parmigianoreggiano
