Peter Lambert, Culinary Institue of America '86, worked for 25 years as a private chef with Manhattan's elite. He, his wife, Amy Burke, D.C., a successful family chiropractor in Manhattan, and urbane 4 year old daughter moved to a miniscule island in the heart of the Mediterranean to reconnect with their shared passion for food, clean living, and the land. Enjoy as they share the beauty and quirks of idyllic life observations, experiences and adventures.
