What's in a Name?

The name reflects the approach. Timpano is an Italian dish, an exquisite main course combining an array of ingredients in the form of complete recipes layered into a kettle-shaped cooking vessel. Preparation takes days. Serving requires a delving from the top layer to the bottom and back up again. Enjoyment is best with many people. The same can be said of effective organizations and of collaborative arrangements. And, the owner loves cooking.
