Fiore Market Cafe Turns One Tuesday December 20th

A year ago Anne and I opened Fiore Market Cafe. It’s been a wild year, filled with long days and wonderful new friends. We are extremely grateful to all our friends and families for their love and support. We couldn’t have done it without them. A year ago tonight I was making my first batch of butternut squash soup with Anne’s sister Clare. As we were getting ready to leave the floor drain overflowed filling the kitchen with water.

I learned a valuable lesson that night. Be careful when you drain the 3-compartment sink. I also learned C’est la vie (That’s life) at least in the restaurant business where anything can go wrong at anytime.

Anne and I are so happy to have met so many wonderful people. It has been the best part of the past year. I don’t think we could have envisioned how this would be. We knew what the restaurant would be like, but we didn’t realize the impact  the people would have on us. It’s hard to explain, but there is something very special about seeing someone visit your restaurant time after time. It  makes you feel really good, kind of like the feeling you get with family. It’s the same feeling I get when I visit my friend’s restaurant in Italy. It’s that feeling of belonging.

Anne and I look forward to 2012. We look forward to meeting many more new people, to having many more friends and to cooking and baking like mad. Grazie mille a tutti. We hope to see you soon.
