From the moment we met Fabrizio & Marla at the farmers market in Pinerolo it felt as if we had know each other for years. We took the market to table cooking class and highly recommend it. We shopped the market for the freshest items for the meal and proceeded to their beautiful home located higher up in the mountains. They put together a menu, at my request, so that I could learn how professionals would prepare some of my favorite dishes. They also incorporated my wife's gluten free requests and after hours of cooking, laugher and wine we ate a gluten free meal that was fabulous. I learned so much that day about preparation as well as gluten substitutes that actually taste good.
Despite too much food we soon fell asleep in a comfy, warm bed and awoke the next morning to crsip mountain air and freshly baked items prepared by Marla for breakfast. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer.
