BounGiorno Cara Maria,
I grew up 6 months a year in NY and 6 months in Tuscany and Sicilia (Isla Della La Feminna) and have many relatives in Rome, one of my favorite cities. I'm doing a Culinary Tour of Rome in October with several Chefs and would love for you to Tag along and guide us around. Please send me a note and let me know if this is possible...Grazia Mille,
Bon Appetito,
Chef Joe DiMaggio, Jr.

A dinner in Rome

Elegance and style for my dinner in a top Rome restaurant near Piazza Navona: Convivio. Angelo Troiani’s modern versions of the typical Roman cuisine offers dishes brimming with personality, like the bay leaf scented roasted pigeon with tangerine sauce and the tasty embrace between crustaceans and pork tripe in home made tagliatelle with Roman pecorino cheese and mint.

Cara Maria Luisa-
It's a shame that not a single Italian Restaurant is in the Top 10,...What's worse is that S. Pelligrino is an Italian Company...I have been to a few of the Top ten restaurants and I'm sorry they are not that good in fact I found them mediocre at best. I have found that Food Critics for the most part undervalue our Italian culinary traditions. However, public polls in the US even among gourmet/foodies have always put Italian Food as their favorite cuisine. Every year a poll conducted by the Wine Spectator magazine always lists the readers favorite cuisine as Italian...Thats why I don't understand the disconnect with Food critics.

Well next time you find yourself in San Francisco you can come and try Ravioli di Foie Gras con Tartufo Bianco
that I make

Michelin stars aren't very important here....They haven't reviewed many cities...And the restaurants they reviewed in New York for example...there ratings were completely inconsistent/flawed to the point that most restaurants don't take them seriously...If you are French you automatically got Stars if you are Italian you didn't....I think they are still bitter about the world cup loss

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
