ROSE: FOOD FOR THE SOUL
These are the varieties of roses present at Santa Caterina. Flowers and food are the elements that sustain our lives, both physically and soulfully. The rose in its myriad forms, shapes, colors, scents, is a flower for excellence and is known throughout the world.
May roses fill my eyes and make me remember all the good things in life. The architect Paolo De Rocco and I had a common passion for this flower and in May my thoughts can only go to him as flowers and nature were the food on his mind. Towards food he harbored a philosophical passion rather than culinary, but when he tasted the excellence in certain dishes he always found pure pleasure.
