No one does pasta like the Italians (a well know fact!), but did you know that flavors and shapes can vary widely based on region? We're exploring the differences and similarities of traditional pasta dishes of Northern and Southern regions of Italy in this very special Farm-to-KITCHEN cooking class. Join us for a seasonal & local twist on the flavors of Emilia Romagna region in the North and the Puglia region in the South. The majority of ingredients for the class will be straight from The Boston Public Market, proving you can buy local, eat local and still achieve international flavors.
Led by Chef Juli, this class will emphasize classic recipes she learned while teaching farm-to-table cooking classes in Italy's capital city for four years (and can tell you a story or two!). She spent her weekends exploring the different regions of Italy and wants to give you a similar experience through food. Juli's recipes will awaken your senses and introduce you to new options for flavorful meals at home.
In addition to learning a new cooking style, you'll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.
This menu can be made vegetarian, but not gluten-free or vegan. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you need a vegetarian option or to inquire about other allergies.
