Description

Your Italian cooking adventure begins where any should, at the local open-air market for some fresh produce shopping. Soak up the atmosphere and locals mingle around you. Your chef will be on hand to introduce you to the market and explain all of its wonderful ingredients.

Our cooking school is just a short walk from the market. Upon arrival you will be greeted with some fresh antipasti and a glass of prosecco. Once settled in, don your apron and take up position at your workspace!

Parmigiana has become one of Italy's most iconic dishes. It consists of a layered dish oozing creamy, gooey mozzarella and ripe, fleshy tomatoes. The Sicilian speciality is traditionally made with eggplant and basil, yet you can actually make this dish with an array of ingredients. We will make it depending on what we find at the market.

The same goes for gnocchi - little fluffy clouds of deliciousness. Gnocchi are routinely made with potato, but as you will discover they can be made with other vegetables also. They are also only supposed to be eaten on Thursdays in Rome. But with this we can make an exception!

It wouldn't be a cooking class without making Italian dessert, so to round things off we'll be making some delicious panna cotta.

To conclude the class the groups comes together to be served lunch with the food they have prepared, complete with local wines.
