Nick and I were traveling through Italy, doing research and taking photo documentation for his Great Italian Desserts book. We needed a break, so we checked into this spa hotel in the middle of Tuscany. A swimming pool with thermal waters bubbling, good meals, beautiful countryside, some fable about Saint Catherine's having visited. I blush to say that this souvenir somehow managed to find its way into my suitcase. There was an accompanying coffee cup, too, but years ago I gave it to a WGBH colleague, Andrea Marcucci.
