Well, Stino's transformation of his restaurant has now been fully finished - he has the new sign for outside. L'Olivo is no more, long live Stino ristorante! That's why Stino looks very happy - he is young(er than me), has a better phone than me and, oh yes, he has a wonderful new cook and a very good team front of house. Bravo!
I write - my first novel, "the Trouble with Wagner" is unpublished. I also write a regular article for "Forward Plus", a churchy newspaper with a circulation of well over 3. I have written some poetry.
I am a dedicated student of languages, especially French. I love classical music. I am a keen oenophile and gastronome and relax most easily at table with friends. I prefer to drink Burgundy, and have a particular love of the (unoaked) wines of Chablis and the wines of the Côte de Beaune and the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. Not sure that I would kick the Côtes de Nuit wines out of bed, either. Not to mention the Côte Chalonnaise.
