Virtual Foodie Tour of Italy for Easter

Our Italian Easter cooking class is a gastronomical virtual tour of Italy which will take you around the regions of this amazing country focusing on Easter cuisine and traditions inspiring all your senses whilst learning about the local culture and enjoying a virtual ‘Salute’ and chat with friends.

We start this foodie Easter tour in the Tuscan region and work our way through Bologna and down to Puglia and then across the water to the wonderful island of Sicily.

What better way to spend your time on the lead up to Easter than travelling virtually through Italy experiencing the rich diverse flavours of the local cuisine!

You will be joining our chefs live from their home kitchen and each recipe is based around what is in season for sustainable cooking. They will start the Easter cooking class by taking you on a journey of Italy with the ingredients for each dish and explaining why and how to cook with them.

What you’ll be cooking:

  • Livia will start us off with her Zuppa Imperiale, Torta Pasqualina, Pizzicotti alle Mandorle e Limone
  • Carlo from his home in North Tuscany will be showing us how to cook Risotto ai carciofi con cremoso di capra (formaggio spalmabile tipo robiola) , Tiramisù alle fragole.
  • Pier Luigi from Bologna will be preparing Minestra Pasqualina, Corona di Pasqua
  • Carla will show us the Sicilian way with her signature Lamb dish.

This Easter cooking class is suitable for novices and enthusiasts to Italian cooking thanks to our Chef’s teaching style.

  • To prepare Italian Easter dishes that are packed with flavour
  • The history and culture behind the ingredients to impress your friends at dinner parties
