Elizabeth Wholey, a resident of Umbria for more than two decades, will be speaking about Italian food traditions and how the people of central Italy sustained themselves throughout history. Their so-called poor foods are still a valued part of the local diet. Her book, Sustenance, Food Traditions in Italy's Heartland, will be available. Sunday, February 1 at the Unitarian church, 1187 Franklin at Geary, 9:30 am.
'I especially want to thank you for our shopping day. It was wonderful to have you as a tour guide and to visit places we certainly would never have found on our own. My Busatti linen is already being made up into table cloths and napkins. I used my truffle honey last night for a dinner party. What an amazing taste. Everyone was thrilled to have us share it with them. We live in a bit of heaven here in Tahoe but I believe you live in a timelessly wonderful place and are very lucky to have found your niche'.
'So many adventures still waiting for us in Umbria. It was really a wonderful trip and our cooking class evening added so much richness to it'.
'I still talk about the wonderful food you prepared for us. The girls loved the bee keeper/alpaca/pottery day. All in all, we could not have asked for a more perfect week'.
My heartfelt thanks to Sharon Burris, Virginia Ives, Addie Jenkins, Katy Keck, Sherry MacGregor, Kathleen Moore, Mara Seers, Kathryn Simon, David Wakely, and all my friends who have supplied photos for this website.
