About kathybechtel

In this role, Kathy leads small group explorations of the authentic regional cuisines and undiscovered wines of Northeastern Italy by bike, foot, or ski.

Kathy is a cooking instructor in Italian cuisine, an avid biker, hiker and a PSIA certified ski instructor on staff at Sugarloaf, ME. She also hosts a small cooking show for WSKI-TV 17 at Sugarloaf.
