The 2014 Lecce Italian Language Experience

Meet Peppino Ciraci and the fabled Pasticiotto



Meet Italian film maker Peppino Ciraci. He is Gianna Greco's husband. You've met Gianna before - she runs the Cooking Experience cooking school in Lecce and she will be taking us for cooking classes while we are there. Anyway, Peppino has made this short film paying homage to the Pasticiotto, fabled dessert of the Salento region of Puglia. Enjoy....

Excitement builds as group meets for the first time. Still time for that spontaneous decision to join.

With less than 8 weeks to go, it was time for our group to come together and meet each other. We did that today (13 July) at Bici Espresso and Pasticceria in Adelaide. It was a great opportunity to meet and talk through the trip and to answer any questions people may have had. To help I gave a short presentation which included images from the 2013 trip and what to expect in 2014, together with a check list for our intrepid travelers. 

I think it is fair to say that everyone is excited. Here is the presentation and the checklist for you to look at.
