Un Pranzo Italiano (An Italian Lunch)

An Italian three-course lunch starting with a wonderful soup filled with greens and meatballs then followed by a traditional Lasagne from southern Italy. This Lasagne is quite different from the usual Bolognese Sauce based experience that most people have had. The real deal takes many hours to produce and is a rich, gastronomical indulgence that has to be tried to be believed. Finally, we will be making a beautiful light Tiramisù with our home-made Mascarpone cheese. Just fabulous!!

Take up my invitation and stay for lunch. Enjoy this spread with some prosciutto crudo, salami and tasty cheeses.

Gnocchi con Sugo di Pomodoro

Miniclass | $75 pp

Gnocchi is one of the Italian dishes that has fallen victim to over simplification in modern times.
