A Taste Of ItalyOn this full day or part-time course (evening / day) you will learn how to prepare and cook a variety of regional Italian dishes from north to south, including fresh pasta.
A Taste of Italy
The food throughout Italy is heavily influenced by other countries. The French in Piedmont, Austrians in Lombardy, Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto; Yugoslavs in Venezia Giulia; Spaniards in the south, Arabs in Sicily. On this full day workshop you will learn how to prepare and cook a variety of regional Italian dishes from north to south, including fresh pasta.
Dishes we cook will vary with the seasons, for example courgette soup in the spring / summer and pheasant and porcini soup in the autumn winter. Other dishes may include osso bucco with gremolata and saffron risotto, hare sauce with pappardelle, fruit pudding and roasted apricots with fresh ricotta. In the afternoon we get out the pasta machines and make a delicious sweet potato agnolotti with sage brown butter and fresh herb or spinach and ricotta ravioli – large restaurant style with lots of filling.
Like all our workshops, this course is hands-on and you will leave the day equipped with the skills and knowledge to recreate impressive dishes at home.
The workshop starts promptly at 10am and finishes at 4pm. We eat what we make in the morning for lunch but there may still be leftovers to take home, so please bring some storage containers.
This workshop is not suitable for vegetarians, or coeliacs. Please email us if you need to know more about the allergens in this course.
All refreshments, equipment and aprons are provided. A booklet of the day’s recipes is also provided at the end of the workshop.
Everyone works individually at their own workstations, sharing only a 4 burner induction hob and standard size fan assisted oven with one other learner. We all work together at the same pace with each stage demonstrated before you do it yourself.
It is essential that you wear flat shoes with a closed toe – this is for your safety and comfort as we will be on our feet most of the time.
