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!

La Ghinghetta

Ciao Everyone!!!

I have GREAT news to all of my readers.

After the Girotonno event I will now be calling Sardegna my home for the next four months.

The restaurant is called La Ghinghetta. It is a 1 star Michelin restaurant and hotel consisting of 8 bedrooms and a 25 seat restaurant. It is family-owned and operated. I am very excited to be starting and have only heard and read excellent things about it. Not to mention it was my first choice place! I hope everything runs smoothly.

I need to start thinking about packing my room up, after all it is only about 2 weeks until I will be leaving Costigliole for good. (I wonder if I will ever be back here?) My friend Ori drove me into Asti today, I picked up two jackets for the competition and later we all had a burger (who knew?) at this little bar right by ICIF. I am really going to miss this place, but before all of the emotional stuff, the girls and I are going to Cinque Terre this weekend for a relaxing time. Can't wait to drink some wine, eat some great food and just all around relax with my 3 favorite people from school. Anyway, that's it for now. Goodnight!!!


  1. Sounds perfect to me, and again….CONGRATS! xoxo

  2. Oh, and I did NOT win the lottery :(
