Here’s a quick video I shot while shooting with Frances Mayes in Tuscany this past October. We spent hours and hours cooking and styling for her upcoming cookbook, The Tuscan Sun Cookbook. Just when we were deliriously tired and didn’t know if we should laugh or cry, Ed (much more charming and handsome than his character in the movie) would appear with a word or poem of the day, and pour wines, offer a smile, and an espresso at just the right moments. Ivan Italiani, a neighbor, also came by to give us a hand with gorgonzola and pear stuffed “full moon” ravioli and his blackberry crostata. Watch how he gathers the dough in one hand and gently unrolls it onto the tart. It’s pure poetry. Click on the bottom right for full screen action.
