But it's nnl the kind nf story you'll find in Ihe LifcStylc section. I've got exclusive details on Ihe engagement parly of Kilty UriRRs at Gina's llaliano Restaurant in Rossmoor Center. 1 will confess right off that some of my details are based on gossin and eavesdropping. Tlinse, of course, are questionable newsgnOicring techniques. My wife and I happened to be dining at fiina's (he other nighl when Kilty was honored with n parly attended by a dozen of her co-workers. Gina's is a wonderful roslaurant, but not very big. Kitty and her girl friends were al a table in the center of the dining room. They were lively, talkalive ana seated so close lo Ihe other patrons that we cnuld hear every word they said. Is that eavesdropping? I suppose so. But we didn't feel guilty about lis- loninfi in, because we couldn't help it. We heard Kitty mention that she wasn't wearing an engagement ring, because a thoughtless jeweler had delayed delivery. Someone then brought up a provocative (bought, asking: "If she doesn't have a ring, is this REALLY an engagement parly?" Piled on a table nearby were many beautifully wrapped gifts for Kilfy. During a discussion of (he wrappings, one of the girls said brightly: "If you break a ribbon, that's baby No. 1." I hadn't heard that one before. I can assure you it caused a flurry of comments and giggles around Ihe table. i do have one or two real facts. Kilty,'who lives in I/is Alamilos, wijl wed Jeff Ray of Pasadena on April S. They will marry in I-ong Beach and live in Oxnard. Bui I musl gel back to thill fascinating superstition aboul breaking a ribbon and baby No. 1. When Kitty opened her gifls, did she break a ribbon? Did she eagerly break a dozen ribbons? Will she have one child or none -- or 12? I know (he answers In those rtuestions, bul I refuse to divulge them because Kitty might punch me in the nose. / am rfcJjphfed. however, lo reveal a prediction from my favonle seer, whose Initials arc Josmc Schultz. She said that Kitly and Jeff will be the lirst California couple ever lo celchrtile their 100th wedding anniversary. L E M O N CHICKEN SO DELECTABLE THAT GOURMET MAGAZINE HAS BEEN TRYING FOR MONTHS TO GET THE RECIPE -- Gina's llaliano Kcslaiminl is at 1215!) Seal Beach Blvd. just north of |hc main section of Rossmoor Center. It's a good-looking little place, very friendly, (he kind of romantic Italian spot cifton featured in love stories in women's magazines. Gina's doesn't have the traditional Ilnllan red- while checked tablecloths. It's smarter than thai. The cloths are red linen. The immaculate while linen imp- kins, folded to resemble larijc flowers, are displayed on (he tables in huge, shining wine glasses. Oina's is owned by Sylvia Gionfriddo Skinner. She's also the No. I chef, and I've mentioned more lhan once thai she ran rook llaliano belter lhan many of (he most expert male chefs. Her recipe for lemon chicken is such a treasure thai Gourmet magazine, a slick national jHihlicalion, wants to prinl it (or Us epicurean readers. Sylvia, also known as Gina, has been loo busy lo send them the recipe. While chatting with her Ihe other night, I Inld her: "Don't send them your recipe. Keep it ami make a fortune with 11. Why give il free lo your competition?" Actually, Sylvia doesn't have an accurate recipe lo send in. She makes tier lemon chicken the way her Italian mother taught her many years ago in New Jersey. She uses "a little of this and a little of thai." Nothing is really mcasiircd. She puts it together by instinct -- and it's delicious. The baked lemon chicken wilh wine sauce is $3.99 on Gina's large dinner. My wife and ! enjoyed the lemon chicken and Gina's peppers wilh sausage, $, another dclcctahli! entree. They came with many courses, including a little anlipasto of cheese, salami and garbanzos: crocks of fine minestrone (soup); big, fresh green salads with bleu cheese or Italian dressing, spaghetti with rich sauce and hot, fresh garlic bread. We accompanied those delcct- ablcs wilh a generous half liter nf Cribari burgundy, $2. Maybe il was Ihosc huge wine glasses ihal riid il; anyway, the wine tasted smoother and heller (him the Cnliari we enjoy at home. We had fine service from waitress Pat McLean. Sylvia does jhe preparation for her entrees in Ihe afternoon. The dishes arc put together at night by her perl daughter, Colleen, a system which enables Sylvia to lie a warm and friendly hosless during Ihe dinner hnur, strolling from table to table, dialling wilh the cuslnm- crs. S o m c l i m c s she w e a r s h e r broad-brimmed "Godmother" hat, lipped at a rakish angle. Her "bodyguards" are such macho Hollywood leading men as Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra and Edward G. Robinson. They arc represented by huge photo blowups on the walls. Quite often, Gina's also has live entertainment. Among the other enlrccs nn (hose large dinners are eight varieties of spaghetti, $2.75 In 1125, and mostac- cioli, cheese manicolli, ravioli, lasagna, stuffed cannel- lo. stuffed eggplant, potato dumplings, chicken cacciato- ri, veal scallopini, veal parmigiana and sluffed beef rolls. The majority of the specialties are $3.50 to $1.75; only one entree is $5.50. Also fealured are the most scrumptious fresh pizzas, made from scratch, 11 inches (Conl. Ncxl Page) 730 E. BROADWAY.
