THE COOKING OF TUSCANYtaught by Malcolm Jessop
Sep. 7th, Sun, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Tuscany, the wonderful region of Italy that runs from the sea to the mountains, is where some fascinating foods originate! It is the region of extra virgin olive oil, fine Chianti's, and robust foods. Here, you can explore this culinary region with Malcolm -- some of the dishes you will make with your fellow students are: Schiacciata - classic Tuscan flatbread with lardo; Cacciucco - fisherman's soup from Livorno; Strisce alla Chiantigianna - pasta cooked in Chianti with pancetta; Arista e Patate Arrosto - roasted bone-in pork loin with sage and rosemary potatoes; Pici Con Ragu - the famous hand-rolled Tuscan pasta; Grilled Shrimp with White Beans and Mint Oil; and Tuscan Ricotta Skillet Cheesecake with Summer Berries. Sante!
