Aimee, Sophie, Bella and David –
We loved Enrico’s class. The history of the steak was fun to learn and we appreciated seeing what the cows look like- so big! Enrico taught us what to do cooking it inside or outside. All the presenters were easy to understand and we loved being part of the Artviva online familia! We loved using Artviva when we were in Firenze several years ago. So excited to try making the bistecca for lunch now! Bon Appetito! Aimee, Sophie, Bella and David
Enrico is wonderful- what a feeling to be connected with so many others from all over the Globe… We all have our love of food, wine & culture in common. Thank you!
After a few expected technical issues were resolved, the online cooking class was a great success and such a fun way to support ArtViva! Grazie Mille to our professional chef who brought joy to the kitchen. Mangia!
Great job Chef! Really enjoyed the class!
