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!

rainy sunday

hi everyone

Not too much exciting going on here in Portoscuso. It's rainy so that means no beach :( But I am helping Laura with the rooms since there are 4 people staying in the hotel for a couple of days. Anyway, thought I would post something because I haven't in awhile.

Going to bake a cake for Sabrina's birthday coming up on Thursday. I was thinking chocolate layer cake with white chocolate mousse filling and cream cheese frosting. Any other suggestions??? Ciao for now!


  1. You could also do milk chocolate frosting. That would also taste yummy!

  2. I ended up making a vanilla Italian buttercream. It takes so good with the butter they use here!
