Gli gnocchi alla romana…. ma sono romani davvero?

ENGLISH   ESPAÑOL

ROMA la citta’ eterna e soprattutto un eterno palcoscenico, il suo fascino e’ intramontabile, passeggiando fra monumenti secolari e millenari.

Dall’agitata via del Corso alle scale di Trinita’ dei Monti, Piazza di Spagna e  i locali di Trastevere.

(english) Let’s make a delicious mess in the kitchen

Have you noticed how the children show interest in everyday life activities pretending and playing games ? But if they can choose it is more pleasant and interesting to actually do one of these activities. Without effort they develop important skills. They love to do funny things, to experiment and be creative …. cooking is all these things together and they like to do it.

In the three years that we have lived in Chile we had  fun cooking afternoons preparing pizzas, cakes and cookies with our friends. And his teacher also used to involve parents in the preparation of cakes and biscuits with her students at school.
