Participant Reviews:

That was actually the best zoom event I have seen on any subject, and I have been watching a fair number of them lately. You are an excellent presenter.

R. Foss, June 7, 2020

Thank you for a very enjoyable lecture and inspiration to make bread! I have not baked bread for years. This was the easiest and best bread I’ve had in a long time!

J. Pomeroy, June 7, 2020

Thank you so much for the great workshop!  It was so much fun and so interesting.  I enjoyed being part of an international class and learning so much about the foodways of ancient Rome.  I will watch for the locations of future classes that might be near me, when it is safe to travel again.  I look forward to more of your classes and would love to join you in Tuscany once this pandemic is under control!

Thank you so much for doing this workshop. I thought it was really interesting and informative. And I got a loaf of bread at the end! I hope you’re able to do more.

D. Alsmeyer, June 7, 2020

It was such a great presentation- I know so little about Roman history and archaeology, I learned so much! And my bread didn’t turn out too poorly for a first attempt! I can’t wait to really dig into all the content you already have up. And I’m looking forward to more of your work. It’s so great to see someone using archaeology in such a fun and interactive way! And it was so nice to see not only how many people attended your presentation, but how much each person learned.

S. Madden, June 7, 2020

I loved your presentation and am very interested in your work. Someday, when Covid-19 is behind us, I’d love to attend a workshop of yours in Italy.
