LEARN HOW TO COOK

 Teacher: My lively friend Alex, whom I have known since kindergarten! She is also the woman I give credit to for putting Brian and I together so it’s an understatement to say I love her. She is a big personality filled with laughter, joy and love. Maybe it’s because she lived in Italy for the past 7 years! That would make anyone joyful right? She recently moved back to the states with her Italian boyfriend Alessandro and I thought what better person to teach me Italian dishes.

Location: Alex’s kitchen

Dish : Pizza party

Alex has been talking about her pizzas for months now and I have been chomping at the bits to learn her secrets. I happen to be a huge pizza fan but had yet to make a pizza from scratch. I’m here to tell you it’s quite a process and as we all know I am not a fan of working with dough. It’s just so finicky and hard to please! But, the final product was worth the time. Alex is a great teacher. She kept cheering me on and telling me how great I was doing, despite the fact my dough was falling apart and my pizza looked like an egg instead of a circle. She kinda reminds me of an Italian grandmother in the kitchen! She’s so good you would think she’s been making pizzas in Rome for the last 40 years.

It was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon and I feel beyond grateful to know a 29-year-old Italian grandmother to teach me the art of pizza! Thank you Alex and Alessandro for opening your home to us! I happen to think you guys are the cutest couple in the world…not to mention the most hospitable hosts in the world.

    Such amazing words! You are too too kind. Pizza night is always a blast, and it was so fun to show you how to make your own! To many Gluten-free pizzas ahead! Cheers ~
