Epicurious Gratitude

The Epicurious Flying Thomases

We Epicurious Travelers would be nothing without our epicurious friends. Without you, we’d be lost!

To the Thomases who introduced us to the charms of Vieques – to lechon, yucca fritters, and Medalla beer.

Andrea Poggi

Hats off to Andrea Poggi who has presided over so many wonderful meals in Italy, we’ve lost track. Grazie, man, and yes, we received the “Zampone,” it’s a very fine trotter.

Andrea organized a wonderful meal for us at Da Fortunato Al Pantheon in Rome. We enjoyed this elegant downtown oasis through two plates of spaghetti vongole and the last drop of vin santo.

And to Chris, with whom we’ve shared the oinky charms of New York City, Cambridge, San Francisco, little old Portland and beyond for what seems like a billion years.

And last but not least, here’s to my original traveling partner – my dad. Our epicurious adventures carried us as far as Paris, Rome, London, Prague, Vienna, and as near as Stony Creek, Connecticut. Thanks, Manny, for your freewheeling spirit and joie de vivre. •
