Taste of Italy: Matteo's home region of Emilia Romagna!



Description

Participants of this class on Saturdays are invited to join Matteo for a tour of the nearby Barossa Farmers Market at 8am where you will have a chance to meet our wonderful producers and collect the produce for your class. The meeting point is at the information booth inside the market entrance.

You will have time to visit the rest of the market on your own before meeting Matteo back at Casa Carboni for your class at 9am. We offer tea and coffee before the class begins.

In this hands-on cooking class you will prepare an Italian long lunch menu inspired by Matteo's home region of Emilia Romagna using beauiful local produce sourced from the Barossa Farmers Market & the farm gate such as: 

  • Piadina Romagnola served w Barossa Valley Cheese Co cheeses, artisan cured meats & Torzi Matthews local wild olives
  • Fresh Pasta: Hand Made Tagliatelle with Ragù alla Bolognese
  • Potato gnocchi
  • Zuppa Inglese a decadent dessert with layers of sponge cake dipped in Alchermes with classic and chocolate crema pasticcera...

Matteo’s philosophy is to teach recipes that can be easily replicated at home so you can prepare these wonderful dishes for your friends and family. Whether you are a beginner or confident in the kitchen, Matteo keeps calendar class sizes to small intimate groups so he can ensure you get the most out of the class.

After the class you will be seated in the Enoteca and dine on the wonderful dishes you have just prepared with a glass of European wine and Illy coffee.

You don’t need to bring anything just wear comfy clothes and a big appetite! If you would like to invite a friend to join you for the Italian Long Lunch at midday after the Taste of Italy class on Saturdays please advise at the time of booking, the cost is $85 per person and includes the 4 course lunch, a glass of wine and coffee.

Benvenuti a casa nostra!

Casa Carboni is an Italian Cooking School and Enoteca in Angaston, 1 hr. 15 minutes drive from Adelaide in South Australia’s famous Barossa Valley. It was established by Fiona and Matteo Carboni in 2012 after moving to Australia from Parma, northern Italy late 2011.

The Carbonis were destined for Melbourne however a dear friend managed to lure them to the Barossa for a visit insisting that they would love the local produce and lifestyle of this fertile land.

Casa Carboni is an extension of our house (‘casa’ pronounced kaza means house/home in Italian) where we welcome friends, family and visitors to enjoy a true Italian experience made of food, wine and being together or ‘stare insieme’. We want to create an environment where we exchange information, experiences and culture and feed each others passions.

Our dream has always been to start a business around food and wine, and when we discovered Angaston, with it’s weekly Barossa Farmers Market, beautiful farm gate produce and an incredible group of like minded people passionate about sustainable farming and ‘buy local’, we instantly thought we could create something here and build a future for our babies, Sofia and Filippo’.

After all the wonderful places in Europe we have visited we never imagined we would find what we were looking for in Angaston in South Australia.

The aim of the cooking school is to offer an Italian experience at 360 degrees. Recipes inspired by Matteo’s homeland and his dear Nonna Pia, brought to life by the extraordinary farm gate produce available here in the Barossa.

In brief, very enjoyable and we learnt lots. We really liked how Matteo structured the class, finding numerous opportunities to pass on his experiences and tips while we were involved in cooking or watching the instruction.

Great value. Inspired a 14 year old boy to cook gnocchi that's worth 5 stars. Left feeling full, satisfied, entertained and inspired.
