Our first dinner party took place approximately 24 hours after we arrived. Our friends Amy and Dan, practically natives of Rome now that they’ve spent eight years here, hosted 10 adults and 7 children…all under age 4.
On the menu was delicious Mexican food, prepared by Dan and his merry men (seriously, all of the men helped in the kitchen. Is this how they do it in Italy? Or Mexico?) As Dan put it, “the main event” was the mole sauce, brought by hand (his hand) from Mexico earlier this year. Atop roast chicken and pork, it was lovely.
