If you follow my Instagram feed, you’ll know that I’m back in Italy this week, sans The Professor; it’s the first International trip I’ve made by myself – a feat that is, by some estimations, a miracle because I’m incredibly directionally challenged, as in ‘any way I’m facing is North’. The Professor still has students to teach and while it was difficult to leave him behind, I managed to travel from the Midwest to Italy without incident – yay me!
This is also my first trip to the villa where I’m not shooting video, taking photos or working – I’m here to participate in the Jovial Culinary Getaway Gluten-Free class as an attendee, to learn the art of Italian cooking and baking. If you ever have an opportunity to attend, I highly recommend – you will not be disappointed – and I’m not getting paid to say this! It’s going to be a fantastic week as I know the food will be exceptional and the people who attend are eager to learn and share this fabulous experience – I cannot wait for the week to unfold!
In the meantime, I’ll be posting more photos of the week over on my Instagram feed if you’d like to follow along.
