The Wind Up: A busy season includes filming season five of ‘Palate to Palette’ and completing our fifth book

By ROBERT ST. JOHN,

NAPLES, ITALY - Wyatt Waters and I have just finished leading two tour groups through Rome, The Amalfi Coast, and Naples.  In addition to filming season five of our television program “Palate to Palette,” Waters and I are also completing our fifth book, and the final paintings for that project have been done over the past couple of weeks.


A PLACE OF SOLITUDE

By ROBERT ST. JOHN,

Wyatt Waters and I are the end of a four-day break between leading two Palate to Palette group tours through Rome, the Amalfi Coast, and Naples.

Our first group’s week went off without a hitch. Weather that promised to be threatening a few days before the start of the trip, ended up being perfect the entire week.




THE TV & THE MEAL TICKET

By ROBERT ST. JOHN,

The only thing stronger than the appetite of a teenage boy is the appetite of several teenage boys.

In my son’s last few years of high school, our house was the place where he and his friends met and hung out.

It could have been because the layout in his bedroom was conducive to the video game setup.






ONE THING

By ROBERT ST. JOHN,

I believe the key to creating great communities starts with one thing. We have our careers and family lives, but the people who make the biggest impact in a society are the ones who seem to focus on one thing above and beyond their professional path or family life.





The Grand Tour

Marina Mengelberg is a Dutch-born Italian tour guide who lives in the heart of Tuscany.  My friend, business partner, and co-collaborator Wyatt Waters and I met her when we first started leading tours in Tuscany.
