Greetings from Carmela's Cucina,

Bought back by popular demand, District 196 has asked me to teach the class, "Tuscan Farm House Cooking: IL Mulino" again this season. The first class was completely sold out, but a few seats remain in the class that will be held at Black Hawk Middle School in Eagan on Wed. night April 16, 2008 at 6:30 p.m. To register go on line at: or phone 651-423-7920.

Bring your imagination as we travel to a cozy Tuscan farmhouse for a menu reminiscent of a relaxed Italian country dinner. We will make and enjoy, warm foccacia bread with paper-thin prosciutto, herb-rubbed roast pork loin prepared Tuscan style, roasted vegetable with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, salad all' Mulino and cream puffs with raspberries.

I will entertain you with my stories of traveling through Italy and growing up in an Italian American family. Be prepared to learn some great entertaining tips and enjoy a relaxing evening of delicious Italian food.

My cook book Carmela's Cucina will be available for sale the evening of the class and I will be happy to personalize it and autograph it for you. This collection of recipes, stories, and photographs would make a great Mother's Day gift as well as wedding and shower gifts as well.

I hope to see you in Eagan on the 16th of April and while you are signing up for that class think about registering for my class on May 7th also at Black Hawk, when we will be enjoying "Dinner al Fresco."

Buon appetito,

Carmela Tursi Hobbins
