This week on A Taste of the Past, host Linda Pelaccio welcomes Judy Witts Francini to talk all about the food of Italian feasts! Despite not being Italian herself, Judy has an impressive Italian culinary resume including Divina Cucina cooking classes and tours as well as a cookbook and smartphone app. Telling Linda how she initially fell in love with Italy and Italian cooking, her journey to culinary expertise has been nothing if not impressive. Going month to month featuring Italian holidays and festivals, Judy relays all the delicious details of the seasonal foods served plus more. This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.





“It’s so much fun to be in a village for a festival, for a celebration; when I organize my culinary courses I like to organize it around a festival.” [15:30]
