Happy New Year, Saucy Tasters!

So I was supposed to travel to Italy last week to settle my daughter (my Sweet Petunia!) into her study abroad semester and the snow canceled my flights and left me cuddled up at home cooking up some comfort food and nursing my wounds (I mean. I REALLY wanted to go!).

Here’s a quick round up of some of my favorite winter comfort recipes that are sure to warm up your insides…

Chef Jacquie’s infectious personality, enthusiasm and knowledge of the Italian Market made our tour for FemCity Philadelphia a unique and memorable experience. This is a wonderful idea for your group or business to do something out of the box and get the inside scoop at some great establishments in South Philadelphia.

I worked with Jacqueline Kelly on a 2015 event in the Italian Market for over 100 Penn Staters. Jacqueline was wonderful to work with—warm and personable, professional and timely. She has build lasting family-like connections to entrepreneurs throughout the Market and indeed, the Philadelphia food scene. Jacqueline and her tours came highly recommended, and she worked with us to develop an interesting and popular program. I You will not only get a hardworking, well-connected food and events pro, you’ll get a friendly helping hand at every step along the way.
