Sing for Your Supper? This Class Could Have…! (Mar 19, 2011)No one would want to hear me “sing for my supper” but many at a delightful cooking class in Rockville, Maryland certainly could have done so! Starting with hosts, Dick and Mary – and their co-host, Lyn (who opened her home to us, along with husband Larry): last September, Dick, Mary and Lyn reveled in the Berkshire Choral Fest week of Umbrian hilltown touring (how great to guide this wonderful group!) and singing (voice study in the afternoons, with their conductor).
There have been many joyous reunions with Berkshire Choral Fest “alum” on this year’s U.S. tour: Ginny sponsored my lecture at MIT, Carlin joined me at a Phoenix cooking class – and other BCF’ers joined in the mid-March class at the home of Lyn and her husband, Larry… I wish they could have joined in song as we cooked but music accompanied us in any case: Dick played a DVD he had made of the choir’s performances in Umbrian churches. What memories!
From co-hosts: “Thanks so much for a great evening! I cook a lot and I learned numerous tips to improve my technique and ease my life! Keep in touch!” Lyn
– and from Mary and Dick – “Mille grazie for a feast of Italian proportions given by such a lovely person who we so much enjoyed in Scheggino. What a treasure you are to all of us.”
“Thank you, Anne, for your presence today and for sharing your love and enthusiasm for all things Italian.” Stephanie
“This was such fun! Thank you for sharing with us ‘real’ Umbrian cooking. What a pleasure and the food was fabulous!” Marybeth (BCF – Scheggino, Umbria – Sept 2011)
