Umbria Rural Life Reminisces in Annapolis, Maryland
Leslie and Ted, my final February/March U.S. tour stop – always Washington, D.C. – is sparked each year with a few highlights: cooking together with you two, appassioned Italophiles, is always one.
From the Italian handcrafts and art in your home, to the cooking group name tags (with a Naples Bay scene painted by Leslie) to the photo display on your TV of our 1970’s Umbrian rural life moments: mamma mia! Che bello!
