In 2003, while making the rounds in our town, Oprah Winfrey was taken to dinner by network aides to the almost 40 year-old Giovanni’s on The Hill. That evening, its founder Giovanni Gabrielle created for her a dish he dubbed, “Pappardelle a la Oprah,” consisting of linguini, porcini mushrooms, gorgonzola cheese and whole garlic. Winfrey was so pleased, she invited Giovanni to prepare the dish on the air. Subsequently Gabrielle fielded hundreds of recipe requests and reservations from people across the states. Now, he has decided to create a massive order of the dish to present to Winfrey and her staff upon the finale of her 25-year reign next week.
