> In addition to learning the Italian language, Umbra students are also learning some tips for la cucina italiana. This week, a local caterer from Perugia led Umbra students on a cooking demonstration for homemade gnocchi. Students had to prepare the pasta, cook the sauce, and of course, sample their creations.
In photos, Denver Miller and Joe Orville roll and cut the dough for gnocchi pasta. At right, Laura Feller proudly displays a tray of pasta before students devoured the finished product.
