Cook & Learn Italian with Nonna Amina and Marino

What a wonderful virtual Italian cooking lesson from a beautiful family in Italy. I felt as if I was right in the kitchen with Marino and his Nonna. As we were preparing to start a class, Marino gave us a tour of his family’s garden and animal kingdom. This was wonderful and it showed what a wonderful family he comes from. Very thoughtful and very kind. We shared the meal at the end and it was delicious! Cannot wait for the next one!
