Market to Table 2020 dates

Market to Table is a special series of appointments created by Rachel Roddy, Carla Tomasi and Alice Adams for visitors to Rome.
The idea is to start at the market, mostly Testaccio, Rachel’s local, where we fill bags and baskets with the best of the season.
We then walk back across the river to Trastevere and up to the latteria studio kitchen where Carla (or Alice) awaits – with more produce from her garden in Ostia.

Learn to bake SOURDOUGH bread with Jeremy Cherfas – Sunday November 17

Join master baker and sourdough nut Jeremy Cherfas for an all day baking workshop.

Along with taking participants through the basics of baking bread with a natural leaven, everyone in this all day class will take home a piece of starter with which to continue their sourdough journey.  And not just any starter!  Jeremy has a much loved Tuscan starter – that he has fed and baked with for over ten years – that is over a hundred years old.  Is there anything particularly Tuscan about it?  Perhaps not, but it is ready to make delicious, flavorful and nutritious bread.

Jeremy will pass on the knowledge surrounding keeping, and using your new (old) starter to make sourdough bread of various types.
There will be a fresh lunch of seasonal produce with wine and detailed notes to take home along with the starter.

Email Jeremy on jcherfas@gmail.com for more info.
