It is lovely to be recognised for the years of hard work. While the certificate is for the last 5 years, I have been teaching pasta lessons since before TripAdvisor was a thing in Italy.
I love what I do, I love meeting people and sharing my knowledge of Italian culture, food and techniques. I love engaging with people from other countries and learning about them and their culinary traditions, whenever possible.
I find that food can unite people who otherwise may wonder if they have common ground. Its been a wonderful career choice for me, definitely a lot more fun and interesting than my career in banking.
