Piccola Cucina and Coming Back

I took a hiatus from blogging for many reasons, but feel a bit more restored and rebalanced. Regardless, I have missed blog-hopping and connecting with all of you out there. I am doing okay, just too busy like all the rest of you. I think I am still recovering from a very traumatic year and just now reconstructing a bit of a new life. I appreciate all the emails from concerned and caring bloggers who missed me. Thank you!

I am excited to announce Piccola Cucina's fall classes. You may have read about my cooking and language classes here before, but this fall, my partner and I have moved our venue to a wonderfully roomy culinary store in Long Beach - Kitchen Outfitters.

You can hop over to our Piccola Cucina site to read all the details of the classes, and I hope those of you in Southern California come and join us for one or more of the classes.

On a completely different note, if you have never tried La Quercia products, I highly recommend them. They are an artisanal producer of cured meats in the U.S. - one of the very few that creates products similar to the Italian originals. I first tried their meats at Mozza in Los Angeles, and have since bought them on-line. Again, I am very impressed with their quality and hope that you will be.

YAY! Glad you're back...we've missed you. I hope you get a little relaxation in soon. If I'm ever out west I'll have to come to a P.C. class :)

You're back! YAY!

Missed you!

Hope your life is finding some new light and direction, and leaving the heartaches behind - not forgotten, but not carried forward with you as you go.

Best to you~

I've had visions of you relaxing on a terrace, overlooking the Adriatic, sipping rose....
I hope the reality was as pleasant.
Welcome back!

Buon Natale! I've been popping in to see how you're been doing. I'm looking forward to any Italian/cooking classes you might be doing in 2009!
