Mark, I've been talking about my Italian cooking holiday since I came home and a thank you to you for making it possible is long overdue. I'm very wary of boring people about holidays but I've been quizzed endlessly by everyone on this one and there has been real enthusiasm to examine the photographs !! Truly it was a fantastic holiday. So many holidays follow the format of showing you the public face of a country but you peeled off the layers to show the authentic Italy. I still cannot fathom why Sabina is not a major tourist destination but feel smug to know about it before the hoards - inevitably - descend. The whole program, the people involved and your own commitment to such astonishing level of personal service was amazing.
