Our visit to Fabiola and Stefano's was one of the most amazing experiences. I telephoned Fabiola from the US and asked about a cooking lesson. She replied that she does not do cooking lessons but we were welcome to help her cook. We made special arrangements therefore to have dinner upon arrival from the US. The soup made up of lobster, shrimp, octopus, squid, and fresh other fish was truly a gourmet delight. We made a tiramasou recipe that was her 92 year old grandmother who lived in Calci. Additionally the appetizer was truly fabulous. We helped her cook, which was a truly delightful experience. Further the breakfast that came with the stay was beautifully presented and one of the nicest breakfasts we had on the trip.
This is truly an amazing place. Both she and her husband were a delight. We enjoyed conversations in Italian, Spanish, French and English.. It was a wonderful first step on Italian land.
Further when I emailed for recipes, she promptly emailed them back, despite a fire in the forest nearby.
