A day of cooking from Mercati in Toscana in Rome, Wednesday 20 Sep from 10am
Giulia is a Tuscan born and bred food writer and photographer and she teaches Tuscan cooking classes in her studio in the countryside in between Siena and Florence.
Join us for a cooking class completely dedicated to La Cucina dei Mercati in Toscana, Giulia and Tommaso’s last cookbook which explores the best Tuscan food markets and their most typical recipes.
We have chosen a menu which perfectly represents the area we are from, with recipes from Chianti, Val d’Orcia and Siena. We will cook a quick and versatile appetizer made of stale bread and pecorino, with an unexpected ingredient, white wine.
We will hand roll pici, thick home-made spaghetti from the Val d’Orcia, and dress them with a rich sausage sauce. We will cook vegetables as the Italian do, until they surrender in a delicious green bean stew. Latte alla portoghese, with a hint of saffron, will close the meal with a sweet ending.
