  1. Hi Paolo! SO nice to have you back. Mark and I both enjoyed listening to and “meeting” Valeria and Benedetta. The discussion around lampredotto took us both back to the market house in Florence where we enjoyed it immensely. Sad there isn’t a pescatarian version for you! 🙂 We will definitely check out their online cooking school and YouTube channel. Stay safe and well

    1. Hi David!! So nice to be back and to learn that you haven’t unsubscribed from my feed! 🙂 Thanks so much for your comment, yeah – I would have liked Lampredotto in my meat-eating days… But frankly I am okay without it! Wish you and Mark all the best – take care!
