1. Charcuterie at Il Buco Vineria. Probably the best I’ve ever had.
2. Gorgonzola cremificato at Murray’s Cheese. Molly and I arrived early for our class so we went two doors down to the cheese bar. Yep, we had more cheese plus charcuterie…before a cheese class.
3. Banana tiramisu at Saranello’s outside Chicago. The chef said it was inspired by his mother’s banana pudding. Italians might scream ‘sacrilege’ but it was so delicious that I can’t make myself care.
When I say the words ‘professional bowler,’ what comes to mind?
I doubt you pictured my friend DiandraAsbaty, but a pro bowler is exactly what she is.
Diandra grew up in a family full of bowlers, and both she and her sister bowled collegiately. Through bowling, she even met her now-husband chefJohn Asbaty. Expect their adorable toddler son Madden (cutie!) to carry on the tradition.
When she isn’t training, competing and coaching, you’ll find Diandra hanging out with her family and enjoying Chicago.
