Stuffed Pastas - The stuffed pasta class will have the students prepare: Canaloni, Ravioli, Tortalini and our special Stuffed Rigatoni
PASTA PASTA PASTA! - There are over 400 shapes of pasta in Italy. We saw most of them on our last trip there. We will make traditional regional pasta with their sauces. Some of the pasta: Pici Pasta Strattatelli (Priest Strangler), Parparadelli, Gnocchi too. The sauces for Pici is a Tuscan fresh tomato sauce with pepperoncino (hot peppers) Tomato Basil, for the Strattatella a Hardy Ragu for the parpadelli, and a Butter sage for the Gnocchi
Vega Vegan - Many people today are following this Vegan Life-style. The Italian diet is similar in many ways to that life-style too! Growing up Italian , We ate mostly Vegetables. We were poor so we lived off the land. We did have chickens and Eggs. My book Simple & Fresh includes mostly vegetable dishes because that is what we ate. This class will explore many variations of those Vegetarian Dishes so that you can experience the Italian Vegan Life-style
Italian Excursion - This class includes several of the new recipes we learned in Italy on our last trip. Hope you can join us and experience the wonderful new recipes we discovered in Italy!
Regional Classes - From time to time, we will offer our special regional classes. Each one will focus on one of the major regions of Italy - Romagna, Campania, Tuscany, Lombardy, Apulia, Liguria, Naples, and Sicily. These classes will cover both the food and the history of the region being covered.
The class size at the school allows a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 participants.
Our cooking school offers encapsulated one day courses. Each class is complete as offered. You may sign up to take several courses or attend just one. We do offer a special discount for the students who sign up for a series of classes.
