This Tuscan cooking workshop is the example of what makes the Tuscan cuisine so loved: her simplicity and amazing flavours. We prepare two types of crostini: green ones with a tangy herbal pesto and red ones with a spicy tomato and beans cream. Crespelle alla fiorentina (thin crêpes stuffed with ricotta and spinach in tomato sauce) will follow. The side dishes are a rich panzanella salad with lots of fresh vegetables and fennel and red onions with olives stewed in white wine. Then desserts: two of the most iconic cookies, cantuccini (crunchy cookies from Prato) and ricciarelli (soft and sweet almond cookies from Siena). Plus the famous torta della nonna, a creamy, custardy tart with pine-nuts, served with a glass of Vin Santo (Tuscan dessert wine)!
This is one of the many cookery classes taught in Amsterdam by renowned Italian cooking school La Cucina del Sole.
