    Patricia was wonderful. We are so sorry that we didn’t take a picture of her showing us how to make pasta and a picture of the wonderful food we had. After we wish we had taken a picture of her and her husband and the lovely young girl that interpreted for her.In our week and a half here it was one of the best experiences we’ve had. if there’s any way we could have a picture of her and her husband for a souvenir that would be lovely. We were so interested in her cooking technique we didn’t think to take out our camera . If possible please email us their photo.Wonderful experience!!!👏🙏❤️
