You’ll be greeted with a welcome prosecco served with salt and pepper shrimp. Then we'll learn to prepare coffee tiramisu. It is a wonderful recipe made with Neapolitan coffee, Italian mascarpone cheese and chocolate chips. We will store the dessert in the fridge while creating fresh pasta from scratch that will be mixed with fresh seafood. The next step will be the main course: salt crusted fish or "crazy water style" according to the season. This meal explores how simple recipes are the best way to enhance fresh fish’s natural taste. At the end, you'll enjoy your own handmade food while relaxing with a good white or red wine. There is a lot to be said for good food, wine and conversation.
When I’d sit in my grandma's kitchen, she’d make pasta while sharing memories of her mom and grandma. It was then I realized my generation was missing something important: the handmade food techniques and traditions passed down through the ages. It was from this love for food that I became the executive chef and founder of Quanto Basta, the first street front cooking school in my town. It is a faithful copy of my grandmother's kitchen, where she preserved meat and cheese for winter by hanging them from the roof's chestnut support beams, and put fresh vegetables and fruit in glass jars filled with oil, vinegar, salt or sugar. Our conversations would go like this: Me: "How much salt are you putting in there, grandma?" She: "Quanto basta", that means…the quantity that's enough… Me: "And how much is q.b. (quanto basta)” And here we are :)
Welcome prosecco served with salt & pepper shrimps. First course: handmade pasta like gnocchi, ravioli, scialatielli served…
We'll be in the open chef's kitchen Quanto Basta Cooking School, a small street front restaurant in the center of town.
