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.
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 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. •
