Cooking, Laughing and Eating in Delaware (Mar. 20, 2014)
“…. a wonderful evening of cooking, laughing and eating!” is how Pauline summed up our Ocean View, Delaware evening, adding, “You remind me of my times with my Italian mother-in-law.” And host Susan put it this way:
“Everything about the evening was reminiscent of growing up in my Italian neighborhood….it was all centered around family, food….”
And at our Delaware class, this enthusiastic group of women all turned Italian for an evening, cooking up Umbrian goodness while sharing laughter and conversation.
And art, too: artist Rosemary shared her watercolor journaling with us over dessert.
We both write for Italian Notebook and Rosemary and her husband had lived two years in Italy.
Well, we finally met here in Delaware!
