restaurateur and TV personality. She is a partner, along with Mario Batali and her

My last meal would consist of a plate of sliced San Daniele prosciutto with some ripe black figs; linguine with white clam sauce; a plate of Grana Padano; and perfectly ripe, juicy peaches.
The setting would be in my house overlooking the Adriatic, while the waves cracked against the rocky shore.
I would have plenty of Bastianich wines. I would like to pair Bastianich Rosato with the prosciutto, Bastianich Vespa with the white clam sauce, and Morellino la Mozza with the Grana Padano.
Sheherazade would be playing in surround sound.
I would like my family and closest friends with me.
I would cook with the assistance of my mother and children as we always do at home.
