Renata's Cafe Italiano for the first time, which turned out to be an excellent idea because the Farfalle Genovese was absolutely delicious. I loved the way they took dishes I thought I knew and put a twist on it. Smoky bacon in your carbonara? Dried tomatoes plus fresh tomatoes in your dish? Yes, please. Also, there was a group of German guys in suits sitting at the table next to me. I was listening into their conversation and sneaking peeks at them, so when they started to look at me, I was worried that I had made it too obvious that I was watching them.
Do you bake cookies from the packet or from scratch?
