Italy Game Plan

So this trip will be a bit shorter than the others I have taken, unless something changes from now until then.  Festival dates are from October 23 – 27.  I am very excited about the new changes and as always thrilled to continue my love affair with Italy.

I have made my class list based on first, second and third choices.  Now I will begin the process of booking the classes and keeping my fingers crossed on the first choices staying available.  I am going to provide a breakdown of what I will be doing at the upcoming Salone del Gusto for those of you who want to keep tabs and those considering sponsorship:
