New Tastes for Lino Tagliapietra...

Tony Leung and his good friend; Lino Tagliapietra, from Italy are great folks, as are many the folk from the club. That is why we are always excited to cook for them. Especially Lino and his lovely wife; Lina. They travel to Seattle from Europe every now and then, and grace us with their presence so that we can cook for them all. It is a wonderful treat, as he and his family love good food. This week they came to the chef's table to dine with some of the other members. Here are some tastes that we served them this time~
