THE AWAITING TABLE IS INNOVATIVE, EXHUBERANT, COLORFUL, TOTALLY ORIGINAL IN DESIGN AND TEACHING TECHNIQUES

Silvestro is the owner and chief architect behind the design and program.

No drab backdrop but color everywhere …colorful dish towels hang from the ceiling.. Really!

Locale for this class is what they call the castle…not a castle in the true definition of the word but a stone villa that meanders through several floors. Bedrooms with private bathrooms are hugel

Morning and evening classes with a 3 hour break in between to enjoy the swimming pool, rest or other activity.

Pasta, almond brittle, charred lettuce are just a few of the things you will learn
