mozzarella in cocotteTuesday 21 & 28 April and 5 and 12 May 2020, 18.00 – 22.30 h.

We prepare some of the best and most surprising Italian vegetarian dishes. Here a few of the recipes we make:

  • Lesson 1, “King Tomato”: all sorts of dishes with tomato, the real King of the Italian cuisine. Oven-baked aubergines with cheese and tomato, Roman stuffed tomatoes in the oven, herb frittata strips in tomato sauce. Then stuffed bell peppers with pesto and cheese, fried panzerotti with tomato and mozzarella from Puglia and more! Plus, of course, a beautiful dessert.
  • Lesson 2, Beautiful, pure dishes: 4 cheeses terrine with nuts and pears served with home-made nut and figs bread, a creamy mushroom paté, small spinach gnocchi with a creamy sauce. Chickpea-vegetables burgers with a spicy home-made salsa, aubergine “schnitzels”, a beautiful salad with champignons and strawberries. The dessert is the famous “roses cake” from Mantua with home-made sabayon.
  • Lesson 3, A stroll through the Italian regions: a wonderful focaccia with tomato and olives from Bari (Puglia), Sicilian arancini di riso with sun-dried tomatoes, minestrone alla genovese. Vegetarian Bolognese sauce, a mixed vegetables tartare with buckwheat and a basil “coulis”, ricotta fritters from Calabria. As dessert the salame di cioccolata, a wonderful, chocolaty “salami” made with cocoa, almonds, butter and dates plus the castagnaccio (chestnut cake) from Tuscany.
  • Lesson 4, Easy and laborious at the same time: pumpkin gnocchi with butter and fresh herbs sauce, oven-baked mozzarella “cocottes” with tomato sauce, and a rich frittata with spaghetti. Little croquettes made with peas and ricotta, pizza with pecorino, vegetables and fresh basil. We also make polenta “crowns” stuffed with Taleggio cheese and porcini mushrooms. The sweet finishing touch is represented by lovely “roses” with fruit and puff pastry served with a creamy mascarpone sauce and an innovative tiramisù with pears, dates and limoncello.
