Hello November 🍁

Today I took a short but wonderful visit to the east gardens of the Imperial Palace here in Tokyo. There were just a few leaves starting to change color but the landscaping was beautiful!

Italian Cooking Lesson

Varenna, Lake Como, Italy We spent almost the whole day learning from Chef Moreno about the art of Italian cooking. We made ricotta & herb filled tortoloni (pictured above), fresh tomato sauce, and breaded trout. The group included 3 other teachers and I loved hearing about everyone’s travels.
