Panini Girl

My obsessions-Italy and Cooking

December 15, 2011


Put A Bow On It!

Make someone’s day! Who wouldn’t want to wake up and find a little bit of Italy tucked into their stocking? Sign your loved one up for the next Panini Girl Cooks In Lucca tour.

There will be shopping at local markets and a visit to the lovely town of Pistoia for their monthly craft fair, not to mention their phenomenal food stores.

There will be hands on cooking classes where we’ll make pasta, and learn about other regional specialties from locals in the know.

Day trips into the coutryside where we’ll see pieces of the past…

And experience life on a farm in the Garfagnana today.

And lots of time for Lucca and all of its splendors-the wall, its churches, caffes, shops, and resturants.

  1. Hey, Panini Girl. Your cooking experience in Lucca really tempts me, but I’m married to a Friulano. Is that a Fogolar is see in the picture of the ladies cooking? Cindy

    • Cindy-do you live in Friuli? If so, I’m totally jealous! I wasn’t sure what a fogolar was so I looked it up and yes it is a hood over the cook top. Come and have lunch with us in Lucca this May.

      • No, I live in B.C., in Canada, but I’ve spent a lot of time in Friuli over the past many years and if I’m ever there when you’re in Lucca, watch for me! I LOVE Friuli, and I LOVE Italy. Friulian food is wonderful, too. Ciao, Cindy

  2. This makes me miss Italy so much. I visited Lucca last spring and explored on bikes, it was great fun and I can’t wait to go back!

  3. I am so inspired by you, that you do this. I have my own dreams about what I’d like to do in Venice… I’d love to connect with you one day to hear about how you make yours happen…

  4. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to joining you in Lucca next spring! We’re in the midst of a cold Canada winter here and just thinking about it warms me up.
