Bocce, Italian bowling, is for everyone, even the chronically feeble like myself. I came early to the game thanks to a high Catholic upbringing. Catholic education was responsible for my introduction to bocce, at the end of a trip to a shrine.  With hot weather came the Italian excuse for extended picnics: the holy pilgrimage.

Massimo Bottura is the chef at Osteria Francescana, which came in at No. 3 in Restaurant Magazine's "World's Top 50 Restaurants" ranking.
