Late Spring 2018
Spring has escaped us but summer is right around the corner! Ralph has planted almost all of his vegetable garden and I have just planted the annual herbs in my garden. Everything is thriving; I can hardly wait to use fresh basil, rosemary, sage, thyme, lemon verbena, chives and many other fabulous herbs that we grow.
We hope you will join us the evening of June 15th for a Perfect Father’s Day Celebration Menu, with dishes made from seasonal produce, fruit and herbs. Don’t wait to sign up for our favorite summer class, All About Zucchini on July 11th, featuring deep fried stuffed zucchini flowers along with three other tasty and easy zucchini recipes and a fabulous, refreshing lemon Tiramisu topped with fresh raspberries! August brings us Fruits from the Garden, a daytime class on the 8th. You will absolutely love my Sicilian Swiss chard torte, my mom’s eggplant parmigiana and fresh summer peaches baked with an Amaretto filling. Back by popular demand we will again be lighting the outdoor Tuscan Oven for our Pizza in the Brick Oven class scheduled for Thursday evening, August 30th. We hope those of you who missed out on the May class will be able to join us in August.
If your child would like to cook with us on June 27th and/or June 28th we still have space available for our end of June Kids Cook Italian classes, and our August camp on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd is filling up quickly. We do not want any of your eager cooks to be disappointed, so sign up soon!
Finally, this June, Ralph and I will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary! We will have a grand celebration in July when our children and 5 granddaughters come home! Ralph and I are so blessed to pursue careers and interests that fill us with joy. We thank all of you for being part of our lives.
Balbina, Gina and I look forward to cooking with you this summer and hopefully dining al fresco on the patio.
