Everything was great. The local and visiting chefs were great. Some of the students were already experienced cooks, yet everyone enjoyed the level of instruction and the new techniques and recipes. The local tours (winery, olive oil mill, Tivoli, Palombara Sabina, etc.) added a lot to our understanding of the culture and appreciation of the recipes. The management of the program put together an itinerary which was very well organized - from the airport transfers, to every detail, it was a worry-free vacation. The only downer was the weather, but that's not your fault! Too hot this time of year! [Regarding the cooking vacation packet:] YOU THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING! [Regarding The International Kitchen staff:] Staff, especially Adrian Hall, was great. They anticipated every need, and answered questions before I asked them! Phyllis P., CA
