A special place, San Vito di Cadore, Belluno, Italy + more than 20 years ago + a kind chef + a kind gesture (this special chef shared this cookie recipe) + a treasured memory. I do believe that kind and gentle gestures always have the power to remain in the hearts of men.
It was during a warm day in Spring when I met this kind chef, he was busy preparing this corn cookie recipe while preparing tea out of freshly gathered “Sambuco” flowers. Maybe he will never know that by sharing his recipe and time he has given me and those who will learn this recipe something priceless and lasting.
