Laura , Italy Specialist

As part of studying Hospitality and Tourism Management Laura was fortunate enough to complete a semester abroad in Florence. During her time in the country she was able to take several weekend trips, immerse herself in Italian culture and try some fantastic food! In addition to her Italian adventures, Laura took full advantage of being on the European continent and explored other cities such as Barcelona, Munich, Prague and Dublin. After graduating, Laura worked in fine dining and hospitality management as a food and beverage manager at one of Boston's well-known hotels. However, she couldn't ignore her love for European culture and decided to put her skills to use at Audley by helping others to discover the magic of Italy. 

In her free time, Laura makes every effort to snowboard all of America's mountains and checks out Boston's Italian restaurants so she can feel closer to her favourite country.

I'll never forget when…

Growing up in Boston, Italian food has been a staple of my life, so it should come as no surprise that the cooking class I took in Florence was simply unforgettable. Taught by a Tuscan chef who shared the history of every ingredient and step of the process. We kneaded, rolled out dough and shaped pasta to perfection (or at least she did) until we had created four beautiful handmade pastas and sauces to pair with them. While devouring the pasta was everyone's favorite part of the day, learning how to prepare a true Bolognese along with other Tuscan traditions was an experience I reminisce about while I'm in the kitchen.
