Super fun evening with Debora! She’s a great host with a great sense of humor. We were 7 people that we’re late to arrive (and depart!) but she was so accommodating through it all. She gave a warm welcome with prosecco and focaccia, she was so patient with the pasta making process insisting that each of us have our turn, the whole session was so well organized and of course she’s a great chef with great tips! Proud to say that our home made meal was simply delicious! Thank you Debora!
