    My evening with Antonietta and Gianni was fabulous. They made me feel like part of the family. They showed me the best types of products to buy at the market and we picked up some interesting local wines. We made a nice selection of vegetable dishes and pasta from scratch. Antonietta is a MASTER baker and you can feel her passion as she pats, rolls and kneads the dough. I cannot say that I will go home and make fresh pasta for my family/friends..but for sure fresh sauce and wonderful easy vegetable dishes. We all had alot of fun and will be sure to be back in their kitchen on my next visit. I highly recommend this experience because you truly are a part of the local community and the family. Thanks to you both for a wonderful evening and sharing your home with me!!
