The menu for this hands on cooking class is inspired by the Northern Italian region of Veneto using fresh produce from the Barossa Farmers Market, local farm gates and our fish monger in Adelaide:

  • Baccalà Manteccato, salt cod & steamed potato pate served with crostini
  • Fresh pasta: Bigoli with anchovies, caramelised onion and parsley
  • Risotto: al Nero di Seppia with ragù di Calamari 
  • Tiramisu

Participants of the Saturday class are invited to join Matteo at the nearby Barossa Farmers Market at 8am, the meeting point is at the information booth inside the market entrance. Matteo loves to give an introduction to the history of the market and our fantastic suppliers, you will then have time to wander the market and collect any produce to take home with you (if you are visiting in summer bring a cooler bag).

The class commences at 9am with Illy coffee, artisan teas & Mork hot chocolate, then it's in to the kitchen to prepare your long lunch.

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.

After the class you will be seated in the Enoteca to enjoy your 4 course lunch with a glass of hand selected European wine and then coffee to finish.

You don’t need to bring anything just wear comfy clothes and closed in shoes! 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.

20 November 2017 • A Taste of Italy: Veneto Long Lunch

What a GREAT way to spend 6 hours on a Saturday - 1hr at an amazing Farmers Market and 5hrs with a diverse bunch of people from all over Australia who came together as if they had known each other for years. Matteo, the maestro, made us all feel at ease with his easy going manner and obvious love of preparing and eating Italian food - quick & easy preparation/cooking with loads of chat and laughter followed by slow eating with a little wine and much talk. Although the savoury dishes were a little too salty for my palate, I really enjoyed the Veneto Long Lunch. I have made Tiramisu for dinner tonight and look forward to making my own pasta from now on. Thank you Matteo and Fiona. We will be back.
