There was a full Fledged Bacchanal going on in Greenwich Village last night. It was held by the Macari Family of which Alexandra Macari and daughter Gabriella hosted this wonderous feast of temptuous food and wines. The Macari family provided the wines along with a Side of Beef, a Pig, and a Rooster of which Chef Jeffrey Teller put together an amazing 10 course full Baccanalian Feast of delicious proportions. There were about 40 revelers on hand for this epic little feast that was savored by all of the friends, family, and fans of Macari Wines.

My Daily Breakfast

Villa Maria Agroturismo is a beautiful Lemon Grove Farm in Minori Italy on the Amalfi Coast south of Positano and the town of Amalfi .. The owners Vincenzo Manzo and his wife Maria turned there lovely little farm in to an Agroturismo in 2000 .. An Agroturismo is a farm or vineyard in Italy where you stay on the property and have wonderful meals made from the products of the farm .. Villa Maria is primarily a Lemon Farm, but Vincenzo has Olive Trees (Olive Oil), Fruit Trees (Peaches, Pears, Apples), and Grapevines of which Vincenzo makes his own tasty white and red wine .. Yes he makes his own Olive Oil, Salami & Prosciutto from the pigs he keeps, as well as Eggs and Chicken from his poultry. So Vincenzo tends to the farm and makes Olive Oil, Wine, Salami, Fruit Preserves, and his own Limoncello. Vincenzo’s wife Mari does the cooking with her sister for the most amazing Breakfast you’ve ever had in your life and fabulous 4 Coruse Dinners every evening on the terrace. Villa Maria is a very special place that everyone who makes it there falls in love with the place, with Maria & Vincenzo as well.
