Spend just a short while in Italy and you’ll realise that there is no such thing as Italian cuisine. Rather, there are over 20 Italian cuisines, from the rich risotto and polenta dishes of the northern regions, to the pizzas and pastas of the south. During this 4-week Italian Cookery and Wine Course in Rome, the ‘eternal city’ and enchanting capital of Italy, you’ll learn how to prepare some of Italy’s most representative regional dishes, and select the best wines to accompany them!
Your cookery and wine lessons will take place in the evenings, from 6pm-9pm. First, you’ll discover dishes and wines from the northern regions of Italy, including a Milanese Risotto, Chianti wines and the delicious dessert Panna cotta. Next, you’ll move on to the dishes of central Italy, including the famous dessert Tiramisu. Last, but not least are the dishes of the south, including delicious Sicilian cannelloni! Please note dishes may vary according to the season.
