Erika is a lovely woman who made my 40th birthday extra special. She came to our vacation home in Tuscany to teach me and some of my closest family and friends some Italian cooking secrets and created a perfect birthday dinner for me. Given all of the global lockdowns, her business (which is solely preparing meals or hosting cooking classes for visitors) is non-existent. She moved to online cooking classes to stay afloat and I have contributed to her business to try and help. She was definitely a part of making my birthday celebration a memorable one and I know that she will do so for many others as long as she can weather the storm.
