Soap – Season Two
I made soap again, this time with Maria.
Maria from Veneto Italy. Maria who makes excellent gnocchi and really simple, delicious pasta dishes.
Maria the fantastic pizzica/bio-dancer.
Maria who corrected my Italian when I made mistakes.
Maria who got a bit impatient and grumpy when the first batch of soap took for ever to saponify…but persisted.
Maria, who very patiently distilled batch after batch after batch of lavender flowers and foliage to harness a humble 20mm litre bottle of lavender oil.
Now Maria has gone and I am left with scented soap, bottles of lavender infused water and an excellent method for making consistently good gnocchi.
Thank you for staying with us Maria Comunian.
