Early Fall 2015

What an outstanding Indian Summer we have been enjoying with cool evenings and bright summer days!

Our kitchen has been hopping since September 1st, with both Corporate and Private classes.  Our list of “Fall 2015 Happenings” highlights some of these events!

October in Tuscany boasts beautiful, huge porcini mushrooms.  On October 7th at 10:30 am, we will teach a dazzling Tuscan Chicken Scaloppini entrée with a rich brown porcini mushroom sauce.  To “cap” off this splendid menu, a classic Tiramisu will be the featured dessert.

Just as the chilly weather arrives these comfort food classes are waiting to be enjoyed. Zuppa e Pane (two fabulous Italian soups and Monkey bread) will be prepared on October 14th at 10:30 am.  And on the evening of October 28th, our “All about Meatballs” class. Who does not love these yummy and delicious “mainstays” of Nonna’s Sunday dinner? 

One of our favorite classes “Una Spaghettata”, “a Pasta Party” will be repeated on the evening of October 20th.  Traditional penne alla Bolognese and pasta e fagioli are great comfort foods to serve your family on a cold winter night!

The menu for our “Kids Cook Italian Election Day” class on November 3rd entitled “Sunday Dinner at Nonna’s House” features a traditional Sunday meal including antipasto, homemade manicotti crepes and meatballs.  For dessert sweet homemade strawberry ice cream sundaes!

Finally, we have restocked our Cucina Casalinga Gourmet Boutique with special Italian extra virgin olive oils, aged balsamic vinegar, Chianti, Pinot and other vinegars, farro, risotto, polenta, Sicilian marmalade, dried oregano branches and a new sampling of brightly colored ceramic olive oil decanters from Umbria.  Please feel free to call us to place an order for pickup and/or delivery.  Of course my Sicilian vegetable cookbook Fiesta del Giardino, and outstanding baking books by Maria Sanchez are also available.

We love to keep busy and classes are filling fast.  Sign up soon and cook with us during this beautiful season of color and comfort food

Balbina, Gina and I hope to see you soon in the Cucina Casalinga kitchen!
