Cari Amici,

Thanksgiving is here!  Hard to believe that just a few weeks ago, Ralph was still harvesting tomatoes, peppers, Swiss chard and Tuscan kale from his garden.  It was an amazing and a bountiful summer for the Kirmser family.

After a respite of two months due to an unexpected medical problem, I am taking advantage of a “quiet time” before the holidays to work on the “Kids Cook Italian” cookbook and to design several traditional and exciting Italian menus for the New Year, featuring comfort foods from all over Italy.  Look for Zuppe y Pane, hearty soups, slow cooked chicken and stews, feast day dishes for Carnevale and Saint Joseph’s Day, and a return of our favorite knife skills chef, Mike Garaghty of Wusthof Knives.  Save the dates listed on the side bar and call soon to book the classes that interest you the most.  We look forward to cooking with all of you and enjoying the fruits or our labors as we sit down to dine after the class.

I am thankful all year long for the warm and caring people who cook with us in our Cucina Casalinga kitchen, and who share our table.  Great friendships have been made here; family stories exchanged, and the love of food, wine and fellowship are always present around my table.

Thank you for the many years of support for our school.  Balbina, Gina and I wish you copious blessings on this Thanksgiving Day and all throughout the year!

Buona Festa,

Sally Maraventano
