How to cook like real Italian chefs: that is what you are going to learn with our workshop. The course is divided into four meetings of two hours and a half each (dinner included) and it is run by two Italian Gambero Rosso chefs
The course, held by Alex Maiorano and Domenico Cecere (they both work as chefs for Roma Food), is going to start on 10th February 2020 and take place every Monday until 2nd March (total meetings: 4). At the end of each class, the participants will eat what they have been cooking. The „Cooking like an Italian chef“ workshop is going to take place at La Lupa (Spreewaldplatz 6 10999 Berlin-Kreuzberg), in one of the most modern and innovative areas of Berlin. The course has been organized by the brand True Italian (the network dedicated to real Italian diners in Berlin) and La Lupa restaurant.
Cooking like an Italian chef
How to make pasta “fresca”. How to cut and cook properly vegetables. How to use rice as a starter or even as a dessert. These are just few of the things you will learn during the 4-appointment workshop. You will experiment, with different spice blends and ingredients, how to create new flavour combinations. You will also take only one ingredient and use it in different ways to prepare different dishes. That is a great chance to challange yourself in a very funny way. Meat and fish won’t be used, at all. So the course is aimed at vegetarians, too.
Program of the course
You will learn only recipes you will be able to prepare also at home, supported by some tricks you couldn’t have imagined, before. At the end of each class, you will eat with the rest of the class.
