Buon Giorno friends and family!

Welcome to "Blogging from the Boot", Where you can read all about my adventures spent in Italy. I will be attending the International Culinary Institute for Foreigners in beautiful Costigliole d'Asti. Along the way I will be cooking, eating, learning, and all around submerging myself in the rich and delicious culture of Italy. Mangia Mangia!

Pasta Pasta!

Today was tiring just because of all the food we ate!! We made 5 fresh pasta dishes, and had a pastry class all morning. Today was delicious. Tomorrow we are going to have class in the wine cellars and have a wine tasting in the afternoon.

I am so glad that I am finally settled in. It has been a couple of years since dorm life and I forgot how fun it was. I'm happy that I have roomates that are all respectful, easy to get along with and all around really cool. School is kicking our butts, 10 hours a day of demos, eating, cooking, tasting...etc. Anyway, gonna go hang out with the Brazillians, trying to upload some pictures on facebook. Check up on my fb page for pictures. Ciao!


  1. I made pasta yesterday, too, but it was not all that great. Bummer, too, because I really wanted it. That's okay because tonight.....red curry from Thai House. That will make up for it. Ciao! xoxo
