Going meatless does not mean less choice

Come and join Livia on her online Italian vegetarian cooking class on a Sunday afternoon to prepare a traditional 3 course lunch. These healthy, fresh Italian recipes featuring seasonal vegetables and delicious Italian spices to create an all round accomplished meal. Each recipe is based around what is in season for sustainable cooking. Livia will start this 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. Cooking Italian style is as much about the ingredients as it is about the tools and kitchen set up. Livia has cooked in many kitchens across Italy and will share her techniques to allow you to cook with ease.

For Livia’s May cooking classes she will guide you through her seasonal menu which is packed full of flavour. For your starter, you will prepare a Focaccia Genovese followed by a delicious Tortino di Melanzane (Aubergine tart) and to finish off with a sweet treat Livia will show you how to create your very own Rotolo Alle Fragole e Mascarpone (Strawberry and Mascarpone roll).
