    So, I am with my teaching partner and 11 students in Italy for a long-planned culinary experience, including classes, market immersions and... well... some good eating! Just wanted to share some pics from today's class on tortellini making and pan-roasted chicken. A special thanks to ChefTalk for supporting our journey!

    I hope you are all enjoying yourself and learning a great deal.

    I love Tuscany and Liguria and have holidayed in both areas many times - and attended a number of cookery courses in both areas!

    It has been fun to document our travels! We are creating a meal tonight with ingredients found only in the markets of Ripatransone. Tomorrow, we head through Umbria and on to Rome for our departure back to the states.

    Below are some pics from dinner the winery.... a life-changing experience!

    Those photographs make me nostalgic for past trips to Italy and ENTHUSIASTIC for my next one (Liguria, early September!)
