Italian Cooking Class: True Tuscan Cuisine

Provided by:

Event runs from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM


In this Italian cooking class in Sydney, we are off to the Tuscan Hills! This is where simplicity is the key ingredient, where honest food defines the art of the Tuscan soul. It was here in Tuscany, where la cucina povera (making great food with simple yet high-quality ingredients) was understood by foreigners as the real integrity of a nation. For this beginner-friendly class, you will be transported to the beautiful Tuscany and learn how to make fresh gnocchi, affectionately called 'topini'. You will learn the flavours of humble dishes like the unique Pappa al Pomodoro and be inspired by a beautiful light sauce of leeks, chillies and walnuts to accompany your perfect gnocchi. You will also learn how to make Peposo, the perfectly cooked meat, breaking in your mouth. Your teacher will transport you to their childhood, as you learn how to make the real polenta, creamy and velvety. And finally, to end the class, enjoy the one and only Torta della Nonna (a traditional Italian tart from Tuscany). Entry Cost All tickets $155
