I'm seriously thinking of making the journey to take the class and of course to enjoy the sites. Has anyone taken the class? How did you like it.

Thank You,

Jane in MO

I've never taken cooking classes, but Faith Willinger is respected as a true authority.

You might also consider http://www.divinacucina.com/code/florence.html Divina Cucina. I know her only through her web site and participation in a different culinary forum. However, she's also a long-time resident, American born, but long-married to an Italian and extremely well-connected in the Florentine culinary world. Most of all, she's passionate about what she does and imparting her love of good food, wine and cheese to others. She's a member of Slow Food, buddies with Fergus Henderson (as co-presenter in conferences where they both share their expertise in All Things Piggy) and an arch supporter of the old, established markets and merchants in her home town.

If you've never been to Florence before, it's a good way to get to know the city outside of museums, churches and stores.

What would be even more unusual and welcome in colder months is http://www.lovesicily.com/cookery-school-in-sicily/. Sicilian food is incredible and little known outside of the island. There are also classes offered through http://www.rusticocooking.com/tours.htm.

If REALLY serious and willing to devote more time and money, there are short courses outside of the degree-programs at http://www.unisg.it/eng/index.php.

Thank you for the post and I checked out the web site. I have e-mailed for information. I might as well do as much as I can while I'm there. I can't wait! This is going to be a culinary vacation for me. The first yes, I hope not the last.

Thank You Everyone Again,
Jane
