There will be plenty of food, wine and happy conversation on the menu in this class. We will focus on the same rustic dishes you would enjoy while sojourning in Italy – unfussy, yet utterly delicious. You’ll learn how to turn simple, seasonal ingredients into sublime meals. A journey into Italian cooking is one of the most rewarding food experiences when fish, meats, pastas and aromatic vegetables mix with delicious small goods, balsamic and olive oils.
In this session you will learn how to make jellied Mediterranean Vegetables with Sardines and Salsa Verde, Homemade Spaghetti con Pancetta, Green Spaghetti al Pesto and Squid Ink Spaghetti. There will be Melon Salad with Parma Ham and Orange Dressing, Chilled Spring Vegetable Minestrone with Vongole, Braised Sage Rabbit with creamy White Polenta, Open Seafood Lasagna with Basil, Braised Spring Lamb with Melanzani and Vine Tomatoes before we finish off with Cassata with Cherry Compote and Zabaglione and Burned Wine Cream with Stracciatella Ice cream.
