Giulia Scarpaleggia 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. On the 12th of December she is back in Rome for a cooking class during which we will cook a Christmas dinner to celebrate the holidays with a Tuscan accent.
We will start the meal with the most traditional crostini neri from the countryside, a chicken liver spread enlivened with capers and anchovies. We will prepare crespelle alla fiorentina with a seasonal filling, followed by the most classic arista alla fiorentina, a roast pork loin made festive with prunes and pancetta.
As for the desserts, we will move to Siena and we will prepare two Medieval treats: we will make ricciarelli, the soft almond biscuits, and panforte, a spiced fruit cake.
Wines from a local farm will accompany our meal and our chats over a table of shared honest food. This is a hands on dinner class, which starts at 5pm, with a maximum of 8 participants, if you want to book your spot send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
