Anyone who knows Brittany and me will tell you we both love to eat. That didn’t change one bit in Italy, in fact I think our love of eating heightened to dangerous levels. Once we were done with a meal, we were discussing what we would eat next. After looking through my photos I was alarmed by how many pictures of food I took, but not alarmed enough to not share them with you! Take a look as we ate our way through Italy.
(I tried every flavor, I guarantee it!)
(At times two cappuccinos were ordered, walking gets tiring!)
(This meringue was the size of my head. Don’t worry, I ate 1/10th of it and then decided that was enough sugar for the day)
(This watermelon taffy was amazingly delicious!)
(My boyfriend and I make arancini once per quarter, that’s all we’re allowed to consume. But when the cat’s away, the mouse will play)
(We love candy, we love it. And the sweet stores were so beautiful in Venice!)
(Britt found this lemon slushie that made our mouths pucker. I am obsessed with lemons so this was a real treat!)
The one thing I learned about Italy? It’s delicious.

Nick gave me a cooking class for my birthday this year and I must say that has been the best birthday gift I have ever gotten (expect for life, from my mom). It was so much fun, we got to take the class with about 12 other people who were just as excited to be there as we were.
(Our teacher, Jordan, used to work at Gary Danko in the city- so you know he’s good!)
(Our first dish was an amazing scallop dish. It was my favorite of the night!)
(What class is complete without wine?)
(We learned basic knife skills, like how to chop an onion in about 10 seconds!)
(Nick placing our Arancini on the cooking sheet)
(Finished product: Arancini (fried risotto balls) and home made marinara. DELICIOUS!)
(For dessert, an amazing chocolate mousse with sea salt and dark chocolate bits)
I can’t say enough good things about Jordan’s Kitchen. If you are a local and looking for a great time, go! But he does sell out quick so plan in advance!
