Antipasto – Involtini di Melanzane – slices of baked eggplant rolled with ricotta, pine nuts and parmigiano and served with a delicious spiced Tomato Sauce.
Primo – Orecchiete con Broccoli – Southern Italy’s fast food – a simple pasta dish with garlic, chilli, broccoli and tomatoes, ready in the time it takes to cook the pasta.
Secondo – Saltimbocca alla Romana – everyone’s favourite – thin slices of chicken breast, proscuitto and sage in a marsala sauce
Insalata – Insalata di Radicchio, Endivo e Arancia – a wonderfully refreshing salad of radicchio, salad greens and orange in a Balsamic Dressing
Dolci – Torta di Mele “da Stefano” – a fantastic apple strudel dessert by our friend Stefano.
Italian Passion…What People are Saying!
Dear Nico, I want to thank you and Belinda for providing us the opportunity to celebrate Peter’s birthday in such a fun and interesting way. Everybody had a fantastic time and the food was delicious! I found the menu from the previous class we attended (must have been 12 tears ago!) and prepared one of the dishes from the cookbook (the Roasted Cauliflower with Pomegranate) for Pete’s special birthday dinner last night. Terrific recipe and I’ll be doing plenty more in coming weeks. We won’t leave it for 12 years to see you again! With very best wishes to you both…Sue
