On Monday, June 9 Vincent Martello, Diana Biagini, and Prof. Borghini went to Firenze to talk about the course in the TV show Sapori di Toscana (Taste of Tuscany) and for some radio interviews. The location show was the Mercato di Sant’Ambrogio, in the city center.

Some mixed photos from different moments of the course. Thanks to the students for taking the pics showed in the blog and to all the people we encountered who made those four weeks memorable.

While students are taking their final exams and handing in their final papers, the schedule for the course is pretty much done, with some minor details to be determined while we will be in Panzano. Check it out here. Many people to meet. Diana, who will be teaching Elementary Italian; Nicola, who will be teaching aesthetics of food during our third week; our hosts Valeria and Luca, Vicky and Guido, Rosalba, and Giulia; butcher Dario Cecchini and his wife Kim; butcher Andrea Falaschi; producers of wine, cheese, olive oil, honey, etc.; Lele and Mimma, who will give us cooking classes once a week; friends and family. Looking forward to a focused and fulfilling teaching experience.

Memories of the past lead us into the future. Here is a shot from a Sunday morning walk during my stay in Panzano in May-June 2013. Stay tuned from updates starting from next week!
