Learn to make easy Italian specialities with Paola Davies-Romano, who spent her early years in Italy working alongside her chef father at their family restaurant. She brings a wealth of cooking experience to this hands-on and interactive cookery class held in her spacious Huntingdon kitchen.
Gain tips and tricks on bringing out the full flavours of Italian cuisine through simple, quality ingredients – the essence of Italian cooking.
You will be making 3 classic dishes from Italy under Paola’s expert guidance. The menu features:
Risotto with butternut squash, peas & king prawns (substituted with red peppers for vegetarians), drizzled with a sage beurre noisette;
Focaccia bread stuffed with cheeses & roasted Mediterranean vegetables;
Zuccotto alla Fiorentina (a no-cook domed Italian dessert made with vanilla sponge soaked in Marsala with lots of surprising layers).
We will welcome you with coffee, tea, cakes and pastries. You’ll then be guided through the steps and techniques to cooking the perfect risotto before enjoying your creation for lunch in Paola’s dining room, along with complimentary Prosecco or non-alcoholic drinks.
The afternoon will be spent learning the secret to making light and fluffy stuffed focaccia, which will be baked for you to enjoy at home.
Paola will then take you through the process of assembling the zuccotto – a simple yet impressive dessert. No baking required! *To take home your zuccotto, you will need to bring a medium-sized pudding bowl (15-20cm in diameter).*
