The Regional Italian Cuisine

Cooking course The regional Italian cuisine la cucina del sole amsterdam

Cooking course “Za05” on Saturday 4 & 18 November and 2 & 16 December 2017 (4 lessons in total, every other week)

All menus can be made 100% vegetarian proof for vegetarians.

Every Italian region (20 in total) has very specific eating habits, recipes and ingredients. In our culinary travel through Italy we discover Piemonte (hand-made pasta – cocoa tagliolini – with a mascarpone and chestnut sauce, Savoy cabbage leaves stuffed with sweet-and-savoury minced meat, potato and courgette gratins, polenta crostini with roasted bell peppers in green sauce, mushrooms sautéed in garlic and parsley and baci di dama cookies with hazelnuts and chocolate), Puglia (bruschette with fresh tomato and burrata, gnocchi made with bread and black olives with sautéed shrimps – also possible in a vegetarian version – and a rich tomato sauce with capers and olives, a courgette, tomato and salty ricotta flan served with caramelized cherry tomatoes, a millefeuille of aubergine, pancetta and smoked scamorza, roasted marinated bell peppers with garlic and mint plus a rich citrus cheesecake), Liguria (ravioli with mushrooms, stuffed chicken thighs with lemon, a savouy pie prepared withpotatoes and green beans, aubergines alla genovese and a mascarpone and chestnut cream with mascarpone and chocolate), Tuscany (testaroli “pasta” with Etruscan pesto, peposo – a spicy beef stew – plus  panzanella – a tangy bread salad packed with wonderful raw veggies – and stewed mushrooms in tomato-wine sauce with spelt and the famous torta della nonna as a dessert, a crunchy base filled with sweet custard and pine-nuts). During each lesson we prepare a complete 3-course meal with 5 or 6 (sometimes more!) different seasonal dishes. These regions will surprise you with the differences in tastes and variations.
