Wednesday September 28th   6-9pm

Most regions of Italy have their own, inimitable flavours and tastes.  Northern Italy, whilst a bundle of regions, brings together a disctinctly different flavour from the Southern regions.  We have chosen some favourite dishes for this special class.  You’ll learn to make a stunner of a fish soup as well as a deliciously tasty chicken stew, add to this a bright, zingy salad and you’ll be armed with a killer dinner party repertoire (don’t forget the scrumptious pear and almond tart!)

The teacher: Simon MacDonnell, aka “Papa” absolutely loves food (can’t you just tell this from the deli?!) and still adores cooking after so many years doing it for a job! His enthusiasm is absolutely contagious! Classes are fun and informative.

Our cookery school, on the top floor above our deli, is a professional kitchen where our chefs create all the homemade dishes in the deli  and for catering events counter during the day – from takeaway dishes, frozen meals and amazing cakes. In the evening, it’s a beautiful and perfect space for learning how to make all these dishes and taste some new flavours. If you ask nicely, Simon might give you a private tour of the deli…

Crostini with pancetta, mascarpone and radicchio

Crostini with pear, gorgonzola and acacia honey

Crostini with finocchia and picked fennel
