Dana's passion is food and our senses with a mission of showing how the richness of our multi-sensory environments and the multitude of our everyday i...
I crave, in no particular order, respect for the audience, respect for the story and its characters and respect for women. It boils down to the basic definition of the principle of this grand word "respect," which is "due regard for the feelings, wishes, rights or traditions of others."
Mystery may always swirl around this most famous of paintings and its subject, but one thing remains certain: Five centuries after a genius immortalized her, the world cannot stop looking at the Renaissance woman whom everyone recognizes -- and whose secrets we are just getting to know.
