The scene at the rally for Corti Brothers was an endearing one. One of my favorite moments came when Biba Caggiano spoke briefly, but sweetly, about Darrell and his store. She said that if when she moved to Sacramento 40 years ago there hadn’t been a Corti Brothers, she probably would have packed her bags and kept moving. Several other local chefs spoke very highly of Darrell and the store, and there were plenty of cameras to capture the spectacle. Darrell was incredibly grateful and gracious, thanking his employees and customers and welcoming Good Eats to the neighborhood. He quoted poet Lorenzo de Medici, in Italian, and then translated: “He who wants to be happy, let him be happy, because tomorrow there’s no certainty that you’ll be happy.”
