Running In Italy Links
- La Cucina del Castello Cooking School – Run by a wonderful character named Vittorio Cambria, who is also an anthropologist, and told us so many fascinating stories about the area. Our classes were taught by local chef Giancarlo Giannelli whose translator, Leonardo from Siena, also sang to us (opera….no, I’m not kidding). Giancarlo was also a grand story-teller and poet. We spent many hours at the dinner table content to finish the last of the wine and hear his stories. I loved the lingering.
- Alta Cucina Society – in New York City, dedicated to celebrating premium Italian food and wine. Also a great website with lots of resources, recipes.
