Cooking the ‘Costa Amalfitana’ with Ursula Ferrigno

Italian born and UK basked chef, writer and cooking teacher Ursula Ferrigno is on her way to Rome.  Join her for a day inspired by her home town Minori on the Amalfi coast, where jagged cliffs rise boldly from the shimmering azure waters and clusters of white and ochre buildings and church towers climb up to the mountains and cascade down to the sea.   Lush terraces of lemon groves, olive trees flourishing high on the cliffs among cherry, fig and tomato vines.
This class will be all about the joys of my village secrets and the wonders of the Campania coastline.
We will gather around the  work table at latteria studio to prepare
Laganelle con calamari e ceci   Pasta with squid and chickpeas
Pesce Serra ai fiori di zucca  Fish wrapped in courgette blossoms.
Insalata di fagiolini Romano   Flat Romano bean salad with mint
Pizza rustica  Savoury ricotta pie with mozzarella, ricotta and capocollo
Torta caprese   Almond cake with fresh seasonal cherries
Like all of the classes at latteria this class will be a small group of 6 participants and the class will end with a convivial lunch enjoying what we have prepared.
Contact Ursula at ursulaferrigno@aol.com to find out more and to book a spot.

Sourdough Class with Jeremy Cherfas – Sunday April 5

Join master baker and sourdough nut Jeremy Cherfas for an all day baking workshop.
This is first and foremost a practical, hands-on day. However, you will use the time while the starter is working its magic to explore the history of wheat and bread and the details of how to care for and use a starter culture.


About the class:

The first order of business is to make your dough. Step by step, Jeremy will guide you through the process, along the way explaining why we do what we do.
If you have never made a loaf before you will be amazed at how a little effort transforms four simple ingredients into a living dough.
And even if you are an experienced baker, there are bound to be new insights.

And as it is the weekend before Easter, you’ll make some hot cross buns too, and maybe talk about the ritual significance of bread in different cultures.

You will leave with your own delicious loaf of handmade bread, plus:

  • a “Tuscan” sourdough starter that may or may not be more than 110 years old;
  • instructions on how to feed and care for your starter and how to use it to bake more bread;
  • an understanding of why Jeremy puts “Tuscan” in scare quotes;
  • a few other recipes;
  • maybe some other treats.

And you will have a great day, with good food, in good company!

Market to Table is a special series of appointments created by Rachel Roddy, Carla Tomasi and Alice Adams for visitors to Rome.

Il Ghiottone Umbro in Rome – 3 day Autumn workshop: 10-13 October

Lisbeth and Thomas from Il Ghiottone Umbro ran their first Roman food weekend workshop this April at latteria studio.  From the look of their produce table as they unloaded their produce from the market (Testaccio on friday and Circo Massimo on Saturday), and the taste of some of the dishes I dipped my fork into, this is one of the best 2 day cooking workshops going.  Lisbeth, a Danish chef, and Thomas, run a boutique bed and breakfast in Todi.  Their next workshop here in Rome will celebrate Autumn and runs between 10 and 13 October.  As well as market visits and classes there will be dinners at favourite Roman restaurants and time for a few aperitivi and sights.

Interesting seasonal dishes and regional classics sum up Thomas and Lisbeth’s style, and the best produce from the markets their mantra.  Read more about this unique course, and others in their Todi kitchen, here.

Email: thomas@ilghiottoneumbro.com for a full workshop outline and all details.
