Cooking with the Italians in Massachusetts (Mar 9, 2013)Well, i really don’t have to write this blog tidbit at all as Italian-American host Rick did it for me in this note on the Millis, Massachusetts cooking class in he and wife Peggy hosted in their home:
“Peg and I can’t thank you enough for sharing the afternoon with us learning a bit about Italy, sharing food, and sharing stories! We had a wonderful time seeing old friends, family, and making some new friends.
Despite growing up in a very Italian family I came away from the afternoon with a new found appreciation for the food that I was raised on. My takeaways from cooking with Annie:
I now understand why the vegetables in my mother’s chicken soup were always added whole!
I do not use enough salt (or brandy) in my cooking
I also don’t use enough wine…
Food is a catalyst by which new friends and families are made
Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It was an afternoon we will not forget.” Rick S
Mille grazie to all of you in our class who joined together con gusto to cook – and eat. Special thanks to Rick and Peggy for hosting us – and to Rick for writing my blog entry on this class.
