Seventh Time Around in Washington, D.C.
Kathy, Steve – and daughter, Carolyn – hard to believe that this was the sixth time commemorating our time together in Umbria through cooking up Umbrian rural goodness.
From the astounding floral carpets in Spello years ago to yet another memorable cooking class united in your Washington apartment: our links remain.
Kathy, thanks for your warm summary of our cooking ties: “Six years; seven hosting; eight dinners. A highlight of my year! You prompt us to invite interesting, different people to spend an afternoon or evening cooking together. Thanks. Hope to see you next year…again!”
….and I hope to see you again, too, next year. In the meantime, I’ll be savoring the memorable moments this year:
