Love, Umbrian Style

Lorenzo Polegri and Kim Brookmire
Zeppelin Restaurant & Cooking School, Orvieto, Italy

James Beard alums Lorenzo Polegri and Kim Brookmire have led Italian cooking classes all over the world, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Italy’s Umbria region. Now their shared adoration for Italian cuisine (and for each other) brings them to the Beard House for a meal that celebrates sumptuous Umbrian fare.
