Ciao Bella!

Some Like It Hot

Do you like it hot? I do.

There is nothing more sexy than food, whether in books like "Nectar", "The Food Of Love", and films "Tampopo", "The Cook, The Thief, The Wife and His Lover," or even "Jamon, Jamon" (was that Penelope Cruz's first film?)

I don't know if this art show will be as spicy as I want it to be, but if the subject matter is aji, Peru's chile peppers (que piccante!) of hundreds of varieties, I'm willing to take the risk.

Aji: Peruvian chile peppers

Mate: Traditional Latin American caffeinated infusion. Often served in a hand-carved gourds known as mate.
