The other evening I was lucky to spend an evening with Stefania Barzini. Hosted by Beatrice Ughi, Stefania is a well renowned Italian chef and author. She also runs a cooking school, as well. With five of us sharing a typically small New York City kitchen, Stefania led us gracefully through preparing a wonderful set of dishes that included - among other things - polpette (meatballs), as well as a unique hummus made with shaved bottarga. It was a tasting preview for an upcoming workshop.
