In this hands on cooking class you will prepare 4 delicious Italian street food recipes that are perfect for your next aperitivo or dinner party:

  • Arancini di Riso (risotto balls) - originating from Sicily you will find these in every bar
  • Cannoli Salati - you will make fresh pasta dough and the filling - this is an original (savoury) variation of the traditional Cannoli Siciliani which is a fried pasta
  • Piadina Romagnola - Italian flat bread originating from Matteo's home region of Romagna, which will be served as it is in Italy with fresh cheese and salad leaves (both locally sourced) and prosciutto di Parma
  • Crocchette di Patate  - a classic recipe from Napoli that can easily be adapted to seasonal availability of produce

Matteo’s philosophy is to teach recipes that can be easily replicated at home so you can replicate 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.

If you would like to invite a friend to join you for the Italian Long Lunch at midday after the Taste of Italy class 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.

22 March 2016 • A Taste of Italy: Italian Street Food!

Seeing how easy it is to make really tasty arincini was great. We have already made some at home and it was almost as good! Also seeing how a professional makes pasta and panini dough will help make our future efforts much easier and successful. Great fun with Matteo and well worth it. Filling and tasty lunch and company of classmates made for an excellent morning. Highly recommended. Anthony and Jan
