Nobody cooks like the Nonnas

There's nothing like a cooking class with the Italian grammas!

After our invigorating swim in the "icy" pool (actually just cool but by comparison to the air it was frigid :}, we dressed and left for "Tutti a Tavola" - I believe it translates to All at the Table. What you would call a total Hands-On cooking experience with the four Italian grammas.


We were greeted to their lovely vineyard with glasses of Prosecco and an amazing appetizer we will definitely be recreating at home. (Crunchy breadstick wrapped with a ultra-fine piece of pancetta and dipped in a combination of turbinado sugar with chili powder.) Trust me, it was hard to resist having more than my fair share.


It was somewhat like watching a comedy routine with Julia Childs. Amongst lots of laughter we learned a few tricks about making gelato and chicken fricassee.



We ate our evening meal with the local wine surrounded by flowers, vineyards with tiny grapes just beginning to appear on the vine, some outstanding views and the home of the owner of the vineyard. Bellisima! (Very Beautiful!)
