Rustic Italian Cooking Lesson, QLD
Learn The Art Of Handmade Pasta
Despite the diversity of Italian cuisine throughout the stunning regions, pasta is one dish that has well and truly penetrated the Italian palate – with varying recipes tantalising taste-bud’s country-wide, and all over the world! Our Rustic Italian cooking class experience takes students on a journey with strong, fresh and quality ingredients thrown together in with a simple methodology that creates delicious dishes every time. This 3-hour class set just outside of Brisbane’s CBD is led by an experienced and passionate chef, who loves to share their adoration of creating and eating beautiful food with each of their students.
Participants will be welcomed with refreshments including pizza, focaccia or freshly baked bread, to enjoy during introductions and a chat with their fellow classmates before they get started. All class members will be given their own apron, notes and recipes to follow throughout the course, where they will be working in small groups following the step-by-step instructions of their chef to create gorgeous Italian fare.
Their sample menu includes 5 examples of the delectable dishes they will be creating on the day:
- Flatbread herbed with lavender and rosemary, combined with pancetta and artichoke, and served with fig balsamic & truffle oil
- Pancetta bark baked cheese and roasted pear
- Speck and sweet potato stuffed ravioli, with a burnt sage butter sauce, & pureed roast capsicum
- Pear and ricotta tarts with blow torched sugar, and gelato of double vanilla pear
- Semi-freddo – an adaptable and incredible Italian ice-cream dessert
This delicious sample menu is based on the availability of seasonal produce, so please keep in mind that it is subject to change slightly at the discretion of the experience provider. However, a delicious pasta will always be included! And what’s more, students are invited to enjoy a sit-down meal after all the hard work is done, where they can enjoy multiple courses of their incredible efforts and enjoy each other’s company.
The Rustic Italian cooking experience sees students work together in a team environment, sharing a workspace and equipment to create their beautiful Italian fare. There is lots of interactive, hands-on learning as well as the chef demonstrating certain dishes, for a holistic learning environment – ideal for those wanting to increase their culinary knowledge, or begin their cooking journey!
