I had an old, dear friend from Boston. We were neighbors. We used to go down to Savenor’s market, a place where Julia Child shopped for her meats. We used to go there and buy sushi grade tuna and take it home and slice it, and dip the raw tuna in soy sauce and wasabi. I forgot how much I loved it. I finally got the opportunity to try it again all these years later…

So, when I was in Venice many years ago and then again last year…I went to Trattoria Madonna and ate spaghetti with black squid ink and cuttlefish on top. I had black teeth and the widest smile. I brought back jarred cuttlefish in squid ink…I finally cooked it up and put it over zucchini that was spiralized to look like spaghetti. Gosh, it was better than in the restaurant. THAT NEVER HAPPENS!!!


Again…I had to share with my Dulce…she wasn’t sure about black squid ink at first…but than she got it! Pun intended.
