Italian Culinary Weekend
Come explore the different regions’ takes on pasta and sauce and learn techniques and ingredients necessary to create an authentic Italian meal. With a focus on preparing fresh, quality ingredients in a simple way that allows their flavors to shine, we’ll spend the weekend exploring the cuisines of Florence, Sicily, Sardinia, Southern Italy and Venice. We’ll also delve into a bit of Italian history and culture along the way. Mary Andino is the culinary instructor and Managing Editor of Feast Magazine.
