Ten Years on a Wait-list in Bethesda (Mar. 22, 2014)
“…Ten years of trying to find a spot in one of your classes: I finally got in! It was worth the wait! I finally found you!..” Lorraine wrote after our Bethesda class, adding “What a wonderful cooking class this has been! Every part of it was fun and delicious! Next stop: Assisi!’
Lisa and Gary, our warm and welcoming hosts, thanks once again for hosting yet another superb Bethesda cooking class. Our fourth this year? And your home-baked breads are always such an appreciated – and delicious! – welcome to each guest. Mille grazie!
And Joan, thanks so much for connecting me to Lisa and Gary – and so glad our “Italy connection” continues. Just think: our ties to “all good things Italian” started years ago during our junior year abroad in Rome. And Italian goodness still links us. Che bello!
A few other comments from cooking class participants:
“Thank you so much for a wonderful evening of cooking and meeting new friends. I have heard so much about you over the years from my California cousins, who are repeat visitors to Assisi….and now so glad to be at a cooking class with you!…hope to see you next in Italy..” Susan
“I think often about our Berkshire Choral Festival trip to Italy…our tour to Assisi and Narni and your knowledge of art and architecture. I love your cooking classes and hope to see you next year …you are an integral connection to Iitaly” Mary Beth
“What great fun and terrific food – and wonderful affirmation that my “quanto basta” cooking style isn’t such a bad idea! Thank you!” Joel
“Thanks for another vicarious tour of Italy ….my burns enriched!” Bruce (Note: I opened the oven door with Bruce right in front ..and he burned his hand! Scusami, Bruce!)
