Who said that when you love what you do, you never work a day in your life? It’s true, they couldn’t be so right. When you love what you do, hours fly by without even realizing or looking forward to your break. This is what happens to me when I teach my language and culture and that is why I have been doing it for such a long time. In the past couple of years, I developed a learning philosophy, teaching Italian through cooking, highly appreciated by adults and children alike, that has allowed me to incorporate culture into language and vice-versa through a hands on approach. The class environment becomes so fun and informal that nobody is afraid of speaking. Having the chance to pass on my linguistic knowledge combined with culinary traditions passed to me by my family makes me feel happy and looking forward to the next class. In the past, two months I have been working on my latest workshop “the Italian winter warmer” with gnocchi and focaccia making. The first class was a success and I look forward to the next this Wednesday. See below what I mean, the images say it all! Be happy enjoy your work or if you don’t change it! Life is too short, carpe diem!
