Summer in Italy

There is a lot more to Italian cuisine than pizza, pasta and risotto (although we love all of them!). Every region has its own style and favourite ingredients, but the Italian approach to cooking is universal - use the best seasonal ingredients and keep the cooking processes simple. 

Course Details

In this class we will use fresh basic ingredients to create simple flavoursome regional dishes from across the country.

We will make dishes such as: 

  • Polpettine di melanzane
  • Fava e chicoria 
  • Grilled polenta with seasonal ciambotta
  • Castelluccio Lentil & Roasted Beetroot Salad
  • Peppers with breadcrumbs
  • Caponata
  • Chickpeas with chilli
  • Rosemary Foccaccia
  • Rocket and Hazelnut pesto
  • Almond and peach tart
  • Tiramisu

The course is a combination of demonstration and hands on participation.

We will finish with meal of all the dishes we have made and you will go home with a comprehensive set of recipes.
