Chef Luigi has-a made it to de Minnesota! As dey say here in celelbration, "Whoot!" 

We-a had to get started right away when I get here because I spent-a two days on de back-a porch yellin' to Miss Caroline dat I was-a here. The driver, he-a no tell nobody I was-a here and she no know I was-a coming! She finally find me on da porch and-a say, "OH CHEF! The delivery man, he never rang the bell!!! Come on in and have a cup of coffee and let's get to work!"

It's-a been busy, busy, busy and so much-a to talk about and so little-a time. As soon as I get-a in de kitchen, Miss Caroline, she-a put me to work a-making de yummy ">Mini Ham and Cheese Rolls." We make-a de dinner rolls from scratch and-a Oh Boy! Chef Luigi, he happy! I almost-a no share with nobody, but she has a lot-a hungry family - such-a lovely people! And Miss Caroline, she-a promise to send some sandwiches with the Chef for his next portion of da journey.

Tomorrow, she say we-a go to see da sights - Red Wing, Minnesota, dats where those beautiful shoes come from - and da Red Wing pottery! It's-a everywhere here! They have-a da Pottery Convention here every year and da town, she-a double in size for three whole days. It's a crazy time!

I'll be back-a tomorrow with-a more pictures and adventures! Fino ad allora!
We warm-a de milk and butter!

About Me
Hello everyone! I'm Chef Luigi, Chef Tony's little brother. My brother Tony got a new job, so I am now the new Allrecipes traveling Chef. I'll be traveling from home to home; cooking and having fun. I can't wait to visit everyone!

I love to cook EVERYTHING!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, I have to admit cooking with my brother Tony is my favorite tradition. We've been cooking together since we were kids. Sitting on counters watching and learning.
My cooking triumphs
When my brother Tony said I'm a better cook than he is! Ha :)
