... all in Italy. Previously a teacher, now she works taking Vespa tours through Tuscany. And as fate deals us this hand, guess who is our local chef when we arrive for a cooking class - Giovanni! The kitchen was in a side street of Florence and as we entered memories came flooding back of the last time we worked in a commercial kitchen many years ago.
