Sofia in a woman’s stance owning it.
Powerful woman own their own sexuality and never apologize for it. What is more “you” than your own sexuality? Sex is a God given right, never apologize for needing it, craving it, owning it. Sexual women are the only women I have any interest in and that’s just the obvious choice. How many partners? Who gives a f#€k? With life the way it is right now you better be letting go during your heathy recreation. What’s a slut BTW? Can you define that for me? Try and sound cool describing that to me right now.
Frank Restaurant at #88 Second Avenue in NYC.
On this June 16th we will celebrate the 15 anniversary of my eldest “son” @frankrestaurant. This place was always supposed to be my grandmothers kitchen with her dining room attached for all to enjoy but mostly to honor her and for me to always remember it. There have been few places in my life that I have felt more at ease or more disarmed. I’d like to hope that @frankrestauant has given some of you the same comforts and more so the same connection to her food. If you truly love and respect someone in your life you honor them by making them immortal. Live on Nonna, not a day goes by that you don’t feed and nourish hundreds of people with what you so generously shared with everyone that ever met you. #grandma #nonna #home #welcomehome #nourish #honor #respect #anniversary #immortality # (at Frank Restaurant)
My mother and father 50 years ago this coming September tied the knot in Corona Queens and have been together ever since. I can’t imagine what this first day was like as they were driving away into the sunset to spend the rest of their lives together, but I can be thankful everyday that they did and consider myself lucky to exist at all. Fate is a very tricky thing and it crosses my mind less and less these days as I learn to accept things as they are and people for who they are. It took a long time to accept my parents and understand that I could not be who I am without every flaw and virtue they possess intact. It’s thoughts like this that make me feel more free than I have ever felt before and realize that everyone has a higher purpose and a role to play in everyone’s lives around them. I’d like to leave this earth one day knowing that I played my role with a full heart and complete honesty for anyone that has stepped into my life even if it was just for minutes or even seconds and even if it was with a harsh tone that they may have needed to hear to alter their path in some productive way. #fate #myphilosophy #truth #honesty #latenightmusings #toughlove #love #gettingallsensitiveandshit #donthatemeforit #momanddad #wedding #oldphoto #solicitude
Handmade Cencione pasta right now and every day 364 days a year no rest no break only Xmas day off so that you may indulge as if in Naples. Roughly translated cencione means “rags” and that’s exactly what they do to Sauce. They soak it up unlike no other short pasta I have ever used so #comeandgetit sauce soaked and dripping all over the place. #pasta #pastaporn #primi #foodporn #instafood #picoftheday (at Sauce Restaurant)
More bales… Same series.
Many years ago I shot only black and white film and had my own full darkroom. I miss it badly when I think of what I could have done with this landscape had I had my gear and choices of film and chemicals. Shot this on my Leica dlux… #leica #blackandwhite #haybales #hay #landscapes #landscape (at Università di Scienze Gastronomiche)
Pollenzo last summer… Some of you may remember this series of hay bales. Just an incredible landscaping method that took into account the complete aesthetic of the landscape within every function of the process itself of creating and storing the bales. Again the Italians teach us a lesson in the quality of life while doing their labors. Why not make it beautiful?
Why not make everything we do beautiful?

The real deal. These are from my trip to Sicily last year in CastelBouno where all my Prisinzano ancestors come from. I’m getting myself physically and emotionally ready for this summers trip to Italy for 6 weeks. I will again be scouring Italy for the best of everything and of course journaling it all right here for you all to see. #journal #log #blog #italy #cannoli #pastry #foodporn #instafood #letsdothis #wannacomeforaride #strapin #buckleup #sicily #castelbouno
Kale potato gnocchi “Aglio d’orato” @suppernyc.
Gnocchi made from cooked chopped kale, potatoes, flour, cheese and eggs. The sauce is a rich chunky tomato sauce with “golden garlic” cream. We cook whole cloves of garlic in olive oil super low heat until the garlic is golden brown and sweet, we then add cream to the garlic and let it simmer till the garlic dissolves in the sauce. On the pick up with toss the gnocchi with the tomato sauce and finish it with the piping hot Aglio d’orato sauce on top. Sick dish, my sons want it everyday. #comeandgetit #foodporn #gnocchi #kale #garlic #aglio #pasta #primi #instafood #letsdothis #method #transparency #welcomehome (at Supper)
When Santino smiles my whole life lights up emerald green with munchkins and wizards and magic potions with princes and princesses. Kids make it ok to believe in fairytales and happily ever afters all over again even if you never did.
