Our Cooking Class Last Week

As you probably know, we hold cooking classes here.  In the last cooking class, we had a group of  45 young adults from 15 to  17 years of age.

This was my first experience with a group of this age  and they were  fantastic, participating to the max.

Before leaving, they wrote their impressions  in our guest book.  All were lovely but one young man wrote something that truly stood out:

 “Thank you so much.  I had a lot of fun learning how to make and try new things.  I hope one day to come back here and see and learn a lot more.  This has been one of the best times of my life and it’s people like you that make this world a wonderful place to be.  From the bottom of my heart I thank you.”

I was impressed. I asked myself why and I thought that  maybe a teenager nowadays needs people that try to improve things by listening to them and also, in our cooking class, he felt that he was part of it all.

I want to thank this young man because he has given to us the feeling  that we may just be on the right path.

 Thank you from the bottom of our hearts as well,
Elena & Mario

    Elena, Mario and staff at Corsignano;

    Thank you all very much for the INCREDIBLE time at Corsignano! Both of you and your staff welcomed my students and fellow teachers with warm hospitality; it was felt. They all talk about the day there; from the relaxed atmosphere, to the cooking lessons and the final out come of getting to eat what they created. The food was “AS GOOD AS IT LOOKED – INCREDIBALE”!

    Personally; I wish my Italian was better so that while I was there I could have conversed more. I must also say, what a beautiful location you have, when and if I have the time, I would gladly spend it there again. I shared the grappa and the Vin Santo with my father, as I believe I mentioned to you he was born and raised in Lucca, and he enjoyed them both. I remember Mario going to get the grappa during dessert; to pour a glass for both him and I; special touches like that are what makes moments to remember.

    You all opened your arms and welcomed us like family – GRAZIE MILLE!

    It will be my honor to return with a group of my food students again! Again thank you for your hospitality!
