An Italian cooking class

We spent a few hours yesterday learning to cook scrippelle, a type of crepe that is used like pasta here in Abruzzo. Vincenza offers cooking classes to the Canadian visitors that come through Valle. She is a charming woman who invited us into her family kitchen and managed to teach us to make several authentic Italian dishes without speaking a word of English.

We went with Barb and John, a couple from Toronto who are staying here and cycling around the area. Here they are helping Vincenza make the crepes. It was a lot of fun and the best part was getting to sit down and eat the meal once we'd finished. I loved the cannelloni con funghi and the torta with yogurt best. These I will make when we get home.


  1. Looks like you're having a great experience with the real Italy. Anything con funghi is delicious!


I really appreciate your comments.
