Fascinating information about types of rice and different uses.Heaps of tips to make the perfect risotto. Marco was a great host and instructor. Great class
Wonderful, I finally feel like I can tackle filled pasta at home.
Great to learn the Italian way of cooking the sauces. Particularly liked the way it is not necessary to fry the onions and other vegetables. Lunch afterwards was delicious and so plentiful, wines were also fabulous and generous.
