    It was a perfect evening. Germana is the most engaging and enthusiastic person, and the food was yummy!! It was only my second event with this group, and I must say everyone is warm and welcoming. I can't wait to actually take Italian!

      I'm happy you enjoyed the evening and the Passatempo members.
      I wish I had more time to talk to everyone more at a one-to-one basis, but I know I'll get to know you better. When I teach Italian I also try to teach the audience how Italians think ... which is kind of crazy ... That's going to be the fun part about it :-)

    Lee, grazie per i complimenti! E' stato un piacere vedervi tutti coinvolti nel cucinare con me. La vostra partecipazione ha reso la serata vivace e divertente. Alla prossima :-)

    Ora sto scrivendo le ricette che ho preparato ieri sera e dovrei renderle disponibili per "download" (si dice anche cosi' in Italiano) al piu' presto.
    Buon fine settimana,
    Germana
    PS Oggi vi ho pensato mentre bevevo il vino rose' che hai portato ed e' avanzato ieri sera ...

    Che bell'occasione per imparare segreti della cucina italiana e migliorare il suo italiano! Germana è un'ottima insegnante e una brava cuoca: creativa, divertente, ben organizzata. E il gruppo di "studenti" è molto simpatico. Insomma c'è tutto per una serata meravigliosa!

    Io non vado al mare questa settimana, quindi mangerò bene invece! C'è stato un errore quando ho provato a pagare ma PayPal mostra una sottrazione...

    • Elena

      Ciao Greg ben tornato! Ti aspettiamo con piacere e se il PayPal ti ha dato problemi troveremo una soluzione

    Ciao ragazzi!
    Sono felice che abbiamo raggiunto il numero richiesto di partecipazione cosi' posso incominciare ad andare a fare la spesa.
    Ho pensato di comperare anche dei funghi Portobello da fare a fette come alternativa alle cotolette di pollo. Inizieremo col preparare un buon sughetto al ragu' che dovra' cuocere a fuoco lento mentre noi faremo gli arancini assieme. Ci sara' un profumo ...
    Come sorpresa vi insegnero' anche a fare un biscotto che accompagnera' benissimo il sorbetto :-)

    Mi raccomando, venite a pancia vuota.

    Sandy, Karina & Charles,
    there are plenty of new opportunities in the future to join us for a fun evening of cooking, eating and tasting good wines. Speaking Italian gets much easier in a relaxed and fun atmosphere :-)
    Arrivederci alla prossima.
