After a brief layover in NYC, it was off to Italy for a two week adventure. I'm here scouting for the venerable Anna-Maria Sorrentino, founder of luxury tour operator, Shop, Wine and Dine. I just landed in Verona (my first time here) and I'm excited to discover it's hidden gems, local markets and gastronomical traditions for upcoming collaborations. But for now, it's time to find a terrace, an Aperol Spritz and a something delicious to snack on. A presto!
