"The patina on this dough bowl is deep and rich and there are two metal inlays adding contrast. Dough bowls were originally filled with bread dough, covered with a cloth and set by the stove to allow it to rise. American, circa 1900." As a sommelier, Lisa Minucci travels the world’s great wine regions and knows that where there is good wine, there is good food--and functional, beautiful pieces devoted to their creation and celebration. Her shop, Heritage Culinary Artifacts, is the ultimate repository for her fabulous finds. It’s also a wonderful excuse for Lisa to continue to travel, eat, fish, hunt, and forage, returning to her Napa Valley home with interesting booty and tales from the trails and tables along the way.
