A Trio-Hosted Austin Dinner
Usually, couples or single persons host my U.S. Umbrian rural cooking classes/dinners – but this year in Austin, three friends formed a “hosting trio.”
Many thanks, Sharon, Sandra and Rebecca for putting together a memorable Austin cooking evening. And thanks, Sharon with husband, Greg, for letting us turn your kitchen into an “Umbrian trattoria” for an evening!
And how about this lovely “trio” of comments?
“It was a very fun, delicious and authentic Italian cooking and eating experience. Loved it all. Loved your advice and insight about professional guides” Sharon
“What fun it’s been. Everything was finely orchestrated and everything was delicious. Thank you for a wonderful evening.” Sandra
“Loved it! The food, the discourse, the cooking – we love all things Italian.” Rebecca (with Marc)
Do see our hosts “on the job”:
Julie and David, Maude and Boyd, to think that we first met in Assisi and just cooked that Umbrian goodness together in Texas!
“So glad we were lost in Assisi and got to meet ‘Annie the American’ – tonight was wonderful…” Julie and David
“Love, love, love all of the WHOLE evening. Beautiful flavors and people. Fun.” Maude
“ Too easy NOT to learn!” Boyd
Maude and Boyd, glad you brought daughter Laura along to share in our good times. Thanks for your enthusiastic words, Laura:
“…so much fun getting to know and helping in the kitchen. Your stories and your food and your heart are beautiful. Grazie!” Laura
Meg and Chris, thanks for following my blog and notes on Italian Notebook – and glad we finally met. Happy to know you have a home in Italy and let us connect again soon – in bellissima Italia! And thanks for your note to me, post-class:
“What fun! Bellissimo! …and fully agree with you: let’s get the smells of good home-cooking back in our homes!…” Meg and Chris
Loren, Erik and Maria, thanks to you, too, for your kind notes and enthusiastic participation.
And may we meet again, here or there, Austin cooking team!
“Truly enjoyed the entire evening! Great companions to split prep work; so many lovely fresh flavors…” Loren
“Fantastic! Great food and recipes and friends and wines…” Erik and Maria
