Hi from Italy

Hi..I'm english but live in Italy with my Italian husband and family. I have 3 beautiful grandchildren who adore baking with "nonna" the only thing is they get more flour and sugar on themselves and the floor than goes into what we're baking. But we enjoy ourselves. At the moment they are learning how to cross stitch which I love to do. We had many restaurants in England, but after retiring my husband helps my daughter who has a beautiful little restaurant here in our town.

Welcome to DC. I too love to cross stitch. Am presently working on a project for my daughter's bedroom. Is Asti on the coast?

Hi Addie,

No Asti unfortunately isn't on the coast, but we are only an hour from both the alps and the coast. Asti is famous for its Asti Spumante and many red wines including Barolo ( which is also the name of the town where it comes from) and Barbaresco. We live in the heart of the winegrowing area. At the beginning of May we have a local wine festival. It lasts 3 days. Its a beautiful festival and attracts lots of visitors all eager to try the local wine.
Happy cooking and cross stitching
