In Italian Home Cooking, we’ll be going on a journey through Italy. In the spring and summer we’ll explore the warm South , whilst in Autumn and Winter we will tour around Northern Italy whose cooking suits particularly well the British climate and the produce of the colder months.
My classes are generally vegetable based, even if I am not vegetarian.
Summer draws me to the vibrant and exuberant food from Campania, Puglia and Sicily, in Southern Italy: Sicilian caponata (sour-sweet aubergine and celery braise), pizzelle fritte from Naples (deep fried little pizzas with raw tomato sauce), pesto trapanese (almond and tomato pesto from Trapani, Sicily), orecchiette con pomodori scattarisciati (orecchiette pasta with fried tomato sauce, from Puglia), cassata (Sicilian marzipan, ricotta and chocolate sponge refrigerated cake) … these are just examples of the food I love to cook now (especially on a wet, English summer day!)
Go to the Book a Class page to book your place. Or buy a voucher as a gift for someone you know who loves cooking or eating Italian food. All classes take place at my home kitchen in Highbury.
Please drop me a line if you are interested and we can discuss the program & dates, in a more specific form – most of my classes are really tailored made.
