Cari Amici!

Auguri di Buon Anno!  Happy New Year from all of us at Cucina Casalinga!  The holidays were fabulous and fun; all of our kids and granddaughters were with us for ten days!  On Christmas Eve, Ralph and I hosted 39 of our family members for the traditional seafood extravaganza and desserts galore.

Carrying on the music tradition in Ralph’s family, after dinner we gathered at the piano, played by my son Tony with Ralph on the oboe and our great-nephew Robby playing the bassoon as we all sang Christmas carols.

Come join us February 4th as Marlene teaches the art of making Perfect Fresh Egg Pasta that will be transformed into fettuccini, spaghetti, ravioli and rigatoni.  Sally will pair all of these shapes with easy and delicious sauces.

Soon we will be cooking together again. Join us on Tuesday evening, March 5th and celebrate Carnevale (Mardi Gras).  I’ve chosen a classic Osso Buco menu, accompanied by polenta and Insalata tre colore.  Our appetizers are crostini with mushrooms and melted fontina cheese and amazing Castagnole – Carnivale deep fried fritters.  Bring your favorite mask and we will vote on the best!  The winner will receive a gift from the boutique!

March is the perfect month for Comfort Soups and on the morning of March 14th we will prepare three favorites with homemade focaccia biscotti.  We hope you will share our special Saint Joseph’s Table on Wednesday morning, March 20th, for Sicily’s classic pasta dishes and Sfingi di San Giuseppe, pastry puffs filled with ricotta, dark chocolate and orange peel) for dessert.

On Tuesday evening, April 2nd, treat yourself to Three Classic Pasta Sauces; penne alla vodka, bucatini all’ amatriciana, fusillione (curly macaroni) with broccoli di rape and shrimp in a light tomato sauce. Desert is poached pears in a warm chocolate sauce.

We will be scheduling our annual Knives Skills Class with Executive Chef Mike Garaghty of Wusthof, returning for his fifth year!  Soon you will find on our adult page the menu and date for our fabulous spring class - All about Risotto!

Balbina, Gina and I look forward to cooking with you in the Cucina Casalinga kitchen!

Buona Cucina,

Sally
