For my 30th birthday a dear friend offered to take me to dinner. She threw out several upscale restaurants, including Cucina Toscana, which she didn’t even know was on my 30 Before 30 list. Honestly, this was Italian food like I’ve never tasted before. We let the waiter pick our entrees and I’m so glad we did. I would have never picked a duck appetizer or a veal entree; how I would have missed out! This was truly an experience I’ll remember all my life!
