Soft, luxurious gnocchi have been part of the Italian diet since they were introduced by the Romans more than 2000 years ago. Like all pasta it comes in a myriad of forms, potato, breadcrumbs, ricotta, vegetables and many others. We will explore the less known varieties and enjoy dishes that will surprise and delight you.

FEEDBACK ON MY CLASSES:
As much as I loved the food and watching it being prepared in front of me, I think the part that I liked most was the lady herself. Sandra is clearly a lover of creativity and style and she shares a special intimacy with her participants that makes her lessons very real and honest. Attending a La Cucina Di Sandra cooking class is but a small invitation into Sandra’s world. Go visit the Italian lady in her beautiful Richmond home and get a taste of what REAL Italian cooking is all about. Thanks Sandra! Bree (www.imageffect.com.au)
Before attending her class we had never met Sandra, but already we’re talking about how we can swing another trip to Melbourne. Sandra’s passion for Italy and generosity with her knowledge make this an experience worth travelling for. We drove eight hours from Adelaide to get to La Cucina di Sandra and it was indeed ‘vale la pena’ – worth the effort! Here’s all you need to know to book your own evening or buy a class for a friend. So go ahead – take a trip to Italy, if only for an evening. [Mary Louise (www.heartinabruzzo.me)]
Wonderful experience, Sandra teaches not just the food, but shares the history and stories associated with flair. Highly recommend any of her classes for an entertaining and educational evening accompanied by amazing food.
These classes conducted by an italian passionate about regional Italian cuisine. Sandra has devised menus from each region of Italy and on the nights I attended she presented each meal in such a way that it was easy to reproduce at home. Not only did we each receive a complete menu on the night, but Sandra emailed another complete menu the next day. Her use of Ricotta was exceptional and explanation of different types, right down to the best places to purchase was fantastic. I tried one of her Ricotta desserts for a dinner party at home (Ricotta cream biscotti crumble and Coffee) and it was so simple after seeing Sandra prepare it. I could recommend these classes to anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of cooking, right up to a great home cook.
