What a perfect way to spend Thanksgiving morning. Alessandra was so charming. I felt for a moment like I was in Italy.
The description of the class was spot on. Very thorough presentation. Knocked off a star because audio quality was a challenge. Presenters should use a quality mic, maybe a headset, rather than the mic on their pc that picks up every movement and paper shuffle. I struggled to hear with these distracting noises.
Very informative, a great way to gain deeper insights into the daily lives of the elite in Tuscany during the Medici era.

Alessandra Becucci was a terrific guide to the food of Renaissance Tuscany and used beautiful visuals to augment the fascinating history. I especially loved her descriptions of how dishes from Italy were brought to France (and other countries) by royalty as well as the pilgrimage.
