A Feast Fit for A King - Happy New Year

Happy New Year - Felice Anno Nuovo!!
I can't believe we've been living in Italy for a year! Incredible!! (More on that later...)
The holidays are holly jolly here so were were excited to celebrate the New Year with a house full of guests! We worked day & night - cooking & cleaning for our big party on New Year's Eve - Capodanno (or cap of the year) for a group of 28 young Italians.  They were ready to eat & party!  The fires were roaring, the kitchen was filled with food, the ground covered in snow, firecrackers popping & the vino flowing!  The menu created by Jason was awesome & every little thing was homemade!
