COOKING CLASS TOUR
This past September a gentle lady from Ohio brought a group of people interested in cooking classes in Italy. I organized and escorted it. For that we went to Abruzzo, a region east of Rome, near the Adriatic Sea. We spent six days in a country hotel among olive groves and vineyards and six more days in another hotel by the beach. The last two days we visited the highlights of Rome and Vatican City.
Every morning we had some activity in different towns, in particular we loved street markets. Then, in different country restaurants, we learned to cook about twenty-five different local specialties. Our teachers were the restaurants’ chefs, mamas, grand-mamas and papas! They were the best cooks in the world! Moreover, we visited three wineries, two pasta factories, one cheese factory, one olive oil mill, one confetti factory. We had one picnic by a mountain and another one by a river. We visited a shopping mall, a few historic places and religious shrines. We went to a few remote mountain towns where some people in the group had family roots. Yes, we danced with the locals in classy ballrooms. It was a total immersion in the local life. Mamma Mia, we had fun, fun, fun!
For this year I don’t have another cooking class: I just wish someone will come up with a group of people interested to have it. Then we will have fun, fun, fun again!
