Massimo Bottura, of Osteria Francescana, personally served us a seven-course dinner in his ancient vinegar cellar. It wasn’t traditionally elegant, but it was something better. Of all places you would want to be in the world at that moment, you were already there.
The most ridiculous travel purchase I’ve ever made was when I bought a fez in Fez.
