Francine took us on a delicious tour of the pastas of Italy ... I had no idea that certain shapes of pasta come from specific regions of Italy. A fun and interesting seminar with great visuals.
Francine Sagan certainly has a huge amount of knowledge and experience related to pasta shapes and dishes from throughout Italy, and great enthusiasm and passion for the subject. The illustrations of forms of pasta, finished dishes and related subjects were abundant and beautiful. If I had any suggestion, it would be that there were perhaps too many pieces of information and illustrations too quickly, to be able to absorb it all and take notes.
I loved this seminar. Francine took us all over Italy with wonderful stories, information and mouth watering photography. A wonderful treat
Francine is by far one of the best and most knowledgeable presenters at Context. You get lovely pictures and maps, recipes, language, history, culture all wrapped up like a ravioli! Everyone will learn something interesting and this presentation is worth a look. Look at her books, too!!
The talk was super informative and I learned so much, even though I thought I knew so much...hahaha! Francine was just awesome - will look into her other lectures for sure.
