We can’t tour but we can have experiences!

Just wrapped up a cooking class via Zoom by Emma in Nice. A large, very delicious apple crepe. This was in conjunction with my soon to be 5 year old granddaughter in Phoenix, part of her birthday present. My daughter found this on AirB&B Experiences They have many adventures for quarantined armchair travelers.

I did the Stories of Jewish Budapest as an Airbnb experience a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed it very much. I think I'll do more of these experiences. Did you cook along with the chef?

My daughters and brothers (spread around the U.S.) and I just finished a Zoom session with The Potter Trail in Edinburgh. It might not be of interest to everyone since it covers the sites related to the Harry Potter books and movies in Edinburgh, but we enjoyed it. You can have up to 20 computers logged on at once, they said (although we just had 7).

I've just learned to make Sicilian Eggplant Caponata via Zoom at Anna Tasca Lanza Online Cooking. This is the second class I've taken (the first class I made a delicious crostata). Each class is 1-1.5 hour in length and costs 35 Euro. Participants are sent the recipe and instructions in advance of the class - we measured and prepared the ingredients before the class begins. You follow along, you can ask questions, and you cook as you go. It's offered at 5:30 p.m. Rome, Italy time but for example, in Atlanta, it's at 11:30 a.m.

Here's the website: Anna Lanza Online Classes.

I've loved taking these classes - it's like a mini-holiday and it also helps support the cooking school when it's not open for participants in person.
