Grandmother Workshop: "The Art of Antipasti"
Join us for our 4th Grandmother Workshop: a simple, informal cooking class on the traditional cooking skills our grandmothers used to teach us. "Antipasto" ("Antipasti" plural) means "Before the meal" in Italian, and it is the traditional first course of an Italian meal.
This workshop will focus on 3 different types of Antipasti, each using fresh Summer ingredients. We will learn two variations on simple, fresh, and tasty Bruschetta, and a versatile Olive Tapenade. Perfect for pairing with a glass of wine as you gather at the table to enjoy the official beginning of the meal.
This will be the 2nd Workshop taught by grandmother Vera Ciammetti, whose Pasta-making Workshop was also a grand success. Vera is a first generation Italian American born in Akron New York to immigrant parents who came over in the 1950's from L'Aquila, Italy. Vera and her 2 sisters along with their mom and grandmother (who also came over from Italy) spent their childhood in the garden and in the kitchen cooking and learning canning, pasta making, and inventing amazing delicacies from the rich bounty of their immense garden. Vera's love of cooking and ability to create a meal out of anything you give her has always been her passion.
Her Antipasti recipes are traditional, though perhaps not unique, and she can teach a simple way to prepare foods with out using any special equipment, in a small kitchen, by hand. Join us as she prepares 3 simple appetizers using seasonal veggies.
The workshop is open to the first 20 people who sign up, so reserve your spot for the next one now. Bring an apron, a chef's knife, a plate, a fork, your friends and family!
