Early Fall 2018
We are in the midst of a late summer heat wave and almost all of our garden tomatoes have been picked. September is here! The days are getting shorter, reminding us that the cool temperatures of fall will soon arrive.
Our family’s summer was beyond exciting with all of our children and grandchildren coming in late July for an amazing celebration of Ralph and my 50th wedding anniversary. We felt so blessed, as all of them helped us to renew our wedding vows. Afterwards a quick beach vacation on the Jersey shore near my sister’s family, and finally a trip to Yankee Stadium for a game against the Kansas City Royals before my son and his family headed home to Wichita.
I hope that you are ready to cook with us soon! We have designed some varied and fabulous menus for parents and all of us in Fairfield County who live such busy lives. Featured daytime classes include: An Everyday Italian Meal, one of my favorite meals that you can prepare in advance; Favorite Pasta Sauces, with our famous Bolognese sauce; Thanksgiving - Italian Style, with traditional recipes from the Maraventano family for the feast!
We have two evening classes; Italian American Favorites, featuring Chicken Scarpariello and Penne alla Vodka; a Pizza Night devoted to homemade pizzas made in your own home oven, and a special Saturday Workshop, All About Risotto! For those of you who love arancine, our Sicilian Stuffed and Deep Fried Rice Balls, here is your chance to learn how to make them for the holidays!
Finally our Kids Cook Summer Camps were amazing and sold-out! Now we are offering two school holiday classes on Columbus Day and Election Day. Sign-up soon to hold your child’s place. We limit class size to 10 students ages 9 to 15!
Recently more and more parents, with their tweens and teens, are joining us at our adult classes. It has been wonderful seeing parents with their children cooking side by side! Your child is always welcome with you for a reduced fee, or your young adult (16 plus) can join us solo at any class, also for a reduced fee.
We look forward to inspiring all of you to join us in the Cucina Casalinga kitchen! Additional classes for late fall and winter will also be posted soon - so stay tuned!
