Pranzo a casa

Not to start a riot, but you know what’s way better than brunch? Pranzo. In Italy, there’s a tradition of eating a multi-course, mid-day meal in the company of good friends and good wine. Of course this is no longer a daily ritual, but the spirit of taking a hearty break in the middle of the day to enjoy food and friends in broad daylight remains alive and well. This is how we do it.
