One great part about this trip besides all the travel was also the food. Italy is known for having amazing creations (no wonder Italian is my favorite)! I’ve made quite a few dishes during my cooking classes here in Italy to embrace this food culture and willing to share them all with you.
One class was purely food and the other was pairing food & wine.
Here are some of the magical recipes I’ve made through these classes (ignore the chicken scratch on some – I had to take notes!):
Spaghetti with Homemade Pesto
Bucatini alla Amatriciana
Chocolate Lava Cake with Pear
Polenta with Mushrooms
Risotto Milanese with Veal Shank
Spaghetti with Clams
Orecchiette with Broccoli Version 1 (above)
Orecchiette with Broccoli (Version 2)
Eggplant Parmigiana Version 1 (above)
Eggplant Parmigiana Version 2
Baccala (Cod Fish) with Potatoes
Chocolate Mousse with Cat’s Tongue Cookies
Saltimbocca (Veal & Prosciutto Slab) & Involtini (Veal & Prosciutto Rolls)
Lamb Shanks with Pan-Fried Artichokes
Pork and Rosemary
Pasta alla Chitarra
