learning to deliver the goods


We went to a cooking class whilst we were in Italy and I must say whilst I was a bit apprehensive, it was really good!  I was imagining that it would be really strict and that I wouldn’t be able to do it.  It was actually really good fun!  I had such a good time and I managed to learn how to make some really excellent food.  The teacher, Lucas, was so patient and created such a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

We made focaccia with olives, sea salt and rosemary.


It was beautiful!
