Allegra, Antonia (Lastreto)

I wish my life would allow including the sure-to-be-terrific Reunion, but that's not so. Know that I'm with you all in spirit as I travel to Baja California to review a cooking school that was fun to launch at Rancho la Puerta. Who knew in the ’60s which adventures we would pursue? I launch cooking schools, conferences for food writers and wine writers, and I coach professionals in those two fields. My husband, Donn Black, and I share six adult children and six grandchildren, ages 5 to 22. And I'm still singing--alto in a trio here in Napa Valley. Here's a toast to you all, with wishes for a marvelous reunion!
