That's Amore

Mar 30, 2019
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Lisa Kindle

This is my friend and colleague, Lisa Lanzillotta Kindle. Lisa graced The BonBonerie with her tremendous baking skills and fiery personality for twenty years. When we hired her, fresh out of culinary school, we quickly learned that she not only had credentials but an enormous commitment to greatness in everything she made.

  It wasn’t until I attended her VERY Italian wedding years later, did I realize just how Italian she was and how the culture of her family with a deep love of food and family held center stage to everything that happened outside the BonBonerie’s doors. At the reception there wasn’t just delicious Italian cuisine, but after dinner we looked forward to a very large chocolate BonBonerie cake and enough platters of authentic family made Italian wedding cookies to cover the entire surface of a twenty foot long table. Lisa was the only girl in her family and her father, Amerigo Lanzillotta, was not going to let her get out of his sight without a grand expression of his love for his beautiful Lisa .One of the most memorable moments of the evening was while enjoying our beautiful Italian dinner her older brother Greg serenaded us with a solo rendition of  “When the Moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore” . It was such a wonderful feast of love and a celebration of their rich Italian heritage.

 Lisa’s father had a barber shop in Delhi for years. Direct from Fuscaldo, Italy, he set up shop grooming West siders with typical Italian style. He also had a talent for creating the most delicious ravioli which Lisa would share with Mary Pat and I each Christmas. Handmade dough was crimped around a simple ricotta cheese or meat filling. Delicioso….

 My core education in the world of food was what I call a four year course in Italian cuisine at the marvelous, but sadly long gone Edwards Restaurant, here in Cincinnati. It was there that I learned how to make myriad kinds of pasta from scratch from fettucini and spaghetti to tortellini and lasagna. That was just part of my job,  the other was working with the Rob Fogel, the owner creating great Italian and European desserts, some of the recipes we still make at the BonBonerie.

 Lisa and I haven’t worked together for awhile but we are coming together on the evening of Saturday March 30th for the joy of cooking together and to raise a little money for 1N5 , local organization that supports removing the stigma of  mental health.

 I have a deep love for authentic Italian cuisine. Some of it which doesn’t always jibe with what we are served here in America. In fact when you try the meatballs that Lisa is going to make for our That’s Amore dinner event on March 30th, you will understand what I am saying .We would like to invite you to our That’s Amore dinner event.

Meet the Charmed One

My sister in law Judy Davis is OPEN. I mean she is open to the world, life, new people and experiences. I am grateful she brings them into my life. The other day after attending her pilates class she introduced me to Michelle Goldfarb while they were having lunch at the BonBonerie. I sat down for a moment and both Judy and Michelle began to tell me about what they were getting themselves into.

Michelle has this wonderfully ingenious business idea called Closet Charmer. She reads your astrological sign and can help you find the right color and style for your wardrobe. I am open to anything that will help my wardrobe to make me feel and look my best.

Thanks to Judy and Michelle we will present an introduction to the Closet Charmer for a possible revelation.  It will take place Thursday in the BonBonerie’s Tearoom on Madison. You can register at our website.
