Giving Thanks, Italian Style

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to the Americans and happy end of autumn to everyone from Italy! Instead of spending time with my family for the annual gorging on turkey and all the trimmings, I was in Le Marche gorging on an amazing seafood extravaganza.


Fresh Tagliatelle with Scampi and Tomatoes


The delicious food almost made up for the lack of family, although I realise I may have lost some sympathy votes with this photo! However, I have been living and breathing this first collection and spent an exciting few days with my manufacturer. Here’s a small teaser to whet your appetite for what’s to come.

Despite the change in tradition, I have much to be thankful for this year. So many of you have been very encouraging through the ups and downs of the past few months and I hope that you all realise how much I appreciate it. I expect this roller coaster to continue on in the years to come and know that I have a great group of supporters riding along, arms held high, screaming their heads off with me.
