Thanks to my friend Chris I was at Cucina Italiana Cooking School for a full on Italian feast! We made pumpkin and beetroot tortelli, chicken scaloppine and semifreddo al caffe dessert. Chef Luciana has a beautiful Italian kitchen and dining room. We spent a good four hours cooking, eating and drinking. It was just such a lovely evening meeting all the people there who love cooking.
Chef LucianaMaking pasta dough from scratch, lots and lots of gentle and lyrical body sway : )
Extra virgin olive oil in a cute bottle with a cute cork. Love the taste of freshly pressed olives. Can’t remember the name of this pasta. It takes very gentle and delicate wrapping and rolling just to make a tiny one of them. Everyone cheered when one was born. Tortelli Di Zucca – pumpkin and beetroot tortelli. DEVINE!
Dessert tastes like velvet. Going through the book written by Luciana.
