New Year’s email from a Head Butler Reader

Recently, Jesse Kornbluth, aka the Head Butler, came to see us in the Bronx to shop. Then, he wrote beautiful things about us and our products here. He liked them all, but he was particularly inspired by our piennolo tomatoes and colatura. Susan is a fervent reader of Head Butler and wrote this to Jesse yesterday, the first day of 2009. Thank you Jesse for sharing and Susan for liking our products!

I really can’t let the night pass without THANKING you big time for the wonderful recipe for pasta that you wrote up.  You so romanced the thing that I immediately ordered the colatura, the wonderful tomatoes,  the pasta, the coffee….oh my!
I saved it [your Gustiamo pasta recipe] for tonight, New Year’s Eve……I added the shrimp… was orgasmic!  We were in heaven.
Our champagne glasses are raised to you….thank you for another year of great head food and palate magic.   Happy Happy New Year.

Susan & friends”

Jesse’s enthusiasm is catching. Read his recipe for Pasta, Piennolo Tomatoes and Colatura and you, too, will want to try it. If you do, let us or Jesse know. This is a very good way to start the new year. Thank you both. You made our day!
