Cari Amici!

The vegetable garden this summer has been spectacular!  In our Cucina kitchen we have made eggplant rollatine, Swiss chard and ricotta torte, zucchini a hundred different ways; including the deep-fried stuffed flowers!

I now designed some exciting and delicious menus for the fall classes from select regions of Italy: Our first class on September 25th is Comfort Foods from Tuscany.  This menu features farmhouse chicken, polenta and cantuccini, the tiny almond biscotti, so loved here and in Italy.

Start off your Columbus Day weekend on Friday evening, October 11th at our Pizza Night with pizzas baked in the outdoor brick oven.  In addition to a variety of fabulous pies, sample caponata, a sweet and sour eggplant appetizer, and a fabulous seafood salad of calamari and shrimp in a Dijon vinaigrette.  Our lemon tiramisu with raspberries is a refreshing and beautiful end to our pizza extravaganza!

On Wednesday, October 16th come and join us and learn to make potato gnocchi alla Sorrentino, light fluffy dumplings baked with Sally’s quick tomato sauce.  Chef Enrico’s Neapolitan meatballs, and artichoke hearts sautéed in garlic, oil and mint compliment the meal at our Campania – An Italian Feast from Amalfi class.  Sweet Maria’s anginetti (lemon drop cookies) and lemon Sorbetto are for dessert!

November 5th is a Kids Cook Italian Election Day Class starting at 10:30.  The menu of soup and panini includes: Italian wedding soup, butternut squash soup, and a variety of individual paninis for the kids to make.

Don’t miss our All About Risotto class on Wednesday, November 13th.  Homemade vegetable and chicken broth, a porcini mushroom risotto and a butternut squash, sage and parmesan cheese risotto will be prepared.  Our stunning compote of seasonal fruits; apples, pears, plums, dried fruit and sultana raisins baked with sugar and cinnamon for dessert is delicious!

On Thursday evening, November 21st we prepare Three Fabulous Seafood Recipes.  Crabmeat and artichoke parmesan puffs, scampi alla Francesca and Filetti di Soglia preziosa (stuffed and rolled sole poached in tomato sauce) are the beautiful fish dishes.  Steamed asparagus and poached pears with fresh raspberries and raspberry sauce will also be served!

Treat yourself to one or several of these exciting classes – your family and guests with thank you.  Balbina and Gina and I wish you a wonderful rest of summer!

Buona Cucina
Sally
