Is marlena de blasi still married
A Thousand Days in Venice by Marlena de BlasiHe saw her across the Piazza San Marco and fell in love from afar. When he sees her again in a Venice cafe a year later, he knows it is fate. He knows little English; and she, a divorced American chef, speaks only food-based Italian. Marlena thinks she is incapable of intimacy, that her heart has lost its capacity for romantic love. But within months of their first meeting, she has packed up her house in St. Louis to marry Fernando — “the stranger” as she calls him — and live in that achingly lovely city in which they met. Vibrant but vaguely baffled by this bold move, Marlena is overwhelmed by the sheer foreignness of her new home, its rituals and customs. But there are delicious moments when Venice opens up its arms to Marlena. She cooks an American feast of Mississippi caviar, cornbread, and fried onions for the locals... and takes the tango she learned in the Poughkeepsie middle school gym to a candlelit trattoria near the Rialto Bridge. All the while, she and Fernando, two disparate souls, build an extraordinary life of passion and possibility.
Featuring Marlena’s own incredible recipes, A Thousand Days in Venice is the enchanting true story of a woman who opens her heart — and falls in love with both a man and a city.

She certainly deserves her privacy, although at the same time, she opened up her life when she wrote about it for anyone to read. I would imagine that she has made quite a lot of money through the sale of her books, and although she may be a perfectly pleasant person, it seems a bit selfish to me to completely ignore the readers whom you opened your life to and who embraced your life through your books. Do I think she should open her door to every tourist who rings her bell?

Or, as I like to say, a mysterious intersection of fate and destiny. Serendipitous seems a weak word. I arrived in Paris from the States on Wednesday, and apart from simply taking in the heart of this great city in springtime, I had two objectives for my brief visit: a return to the iconic, 19th-century cookware shop, E. Dehillerin, and a stop at a small Left Bank boutique shop, Huilerie J. Dehillerin, which is not far from the Opera.
You should contact her to do an interview! Ciao, Cristina. I love her books, but this one is my favourite. I love how she makes every day life beautiful and important like carrying a silver flask of cognac and a small glass in a velvet pouch. Oh my goodness this is one of my favorite books!!!!
