Last Thursday night, CCA – Le Cordon Bleu culinary students Armina Tengco Pingul and Emily Lehua Edwards arrived in Radicondoli to begin a three-month externship in the kitchen of Ristorante Nazionale, sponsored by Il Campo/Cucina. We first met Emily and Armina on our February visit to San Francisco, when Il Campo/Cucina chef instructors Francesco Costagli and Mara Bovicelli taught classes to eighty culinary and pastry students at the esteemed culinary school.
So far, Emily and Armina have enjoyed a pizza dinner at La Pergola Pizzeria, sampled a variety of Tuscan dishes at La Nazionale, tasted the best gelato in the world at San Gimignano’s Pluripremiata Gelateria Artiginale, and taken several walks around the village and countryside. They now know what a caper plant looks like and where to get fresh bay leaves, among other useful bits of culinary information.
We are so happy to have you here Emily and Armina–welcome to Radicondoli!
