I attended afternoon tea at the Peninsula Chicago in honor of my niece.
It was especially beautiful because of all the Christmas decorations they had up, the tree was stunning in warm colors of reds and golds.
A great experience and a fun thing to do if you’re in Chicago with your girlfriends.
This woman is well into her 80′s and shes a spitfire in the kitchen, she puts us all to shame!
Bietole is basically swiss chard that is sauteed with lots of garlic and oil.
The sauteed chard is then placed on a pasta dough with enormous amounts of Pecorino romano, more garlic and olive oil then rolled up jelly roll style and baked. It’s so simple with just a few ingredients but the taste is out of this world!
I highly recommend a day of pasta making with family or friends, it’s a great way to spend a day!
