Rachel has ignited a passion in me for the Aperitivo! I took this same class many months ago, then took her other on the Aperitivo in Italy and have repeated both because I didn't listen well enough the first time! She is a superstar presenter and seems to update her presentations so that I keep learning new things. The first time through we were in the depths of Covid SIP and these Conversations were a light yet very informative way to learn more about Italy while stuck at home. Now, we are confirmed devotees of Aperitivi and they have, indeed, enhanced our lives!
I really liked the combination of practical advice, historical perspective, and travel advice.
I truly enjoyed this presentation by the very knowledgeable and erudite Rachel Erdman. I will not make a habit of drinking "up a storm" which is an expression often used here on the East Coast of Canada and my power just came on after Hurricane Elsa had knocked it out. I love drinking negroni and love the addition of a small amount of top quality white balsamic vinegar as recommended by Stanley Tucci in his recent six part series on CNN with his travels around Italy and I hope the next series starting soon, includes a stop in Venice (and how can it on if he is to be taken seriously)?
Such a great presentation! Learned not only really interesting things about these various popular drinks in Venice but also lots of nuggets about Venice itself. Rachel was an excellent guide-tremendous knowledge, great pace and a very fun session.
Great presentation, very informative and lots of fun!
