Mascarpone Cake and Philosophical Discussions

So, its been 7 weeks now since we arrived in Modena.

The nights are getting longer and the chill in the air is starting to bite first thing in the morning.
Italian children go to school wearing 4 to 5 layers of clothing, only to have them removed meticulously, once inside. The temperature in the classrooms can rise up to 38 degrees celsius, and thats without the heating on lol.

Gnocchi with Traditional Italian Tomato Sauce

So now for a huge update:
After many trials and tribulations in the UK, I was offered a teaching position in Italy, in the area I had visited whilst on holiday.
The offer was tempting-a good school and amazing food|
