A candle lit for "Coifed to Cook"

A member of our tasting panel, Maddalena “Maddie” DeRosa Brown, recently returned from a trip that included a Mediterranean cruise. Among other spots, she and her husband stopped in Italy, Turkey and the Grecian island Crete. While in Crete, she came upon a stone chapel where natives and visitors alike light a candle on an altar. Perhaps they are honoring a loved one, or like Maddie, wishing good luck and good fortune for a friend's new endeavor. In any case, we hope Maddie's lit candle (far right in the photo) brings us luck.
