Last Sunday, after months and months thinking about it, I finally gave my first cooking lessons in my kitchen, Valu’s kitchen!
I am so excited! Many thoughts, many worries, many indecisions, but last summer something changed. I want you to know in which way Italians enjoy their cuisine and I wish to reveal tricks, stories and the bases of the italian cuisine. I will teach the secret of a simple tomato sauce and how to choose ingredients, how to use them and that less is always better than too much.
I wish people to come at valu’s kitchen and enjoy an italian experience.
We were five and I taught how to make ‘ravioli capresi’, a special recipe from Capri. A welcome coffee, rigorously neapolitan, a glass of water and a little biscuit, “Margheritine di Stresa” kindly offered by Davide, a friend of mine who very much supports my project. This is the way in which neapolitans make someone feel at home. If you go in a Neapolitan house you will be offered a coffee and a glass of water. Distrust a Neapolitan who won’t offer you a coffee!
Aprons on and we started with the lesson. I showed all the ravioli preparation process, the dough for the pasta, the filling and the tomatoe sauce. They prepared everything with devotion, having fun and handling the normal little kitchen accidents.
My friend Ludovica was there and took pictures of the lesson and took care of the music, I can’t cook in silence, I never cook in silence, Domenico is musician and music is part of our house and so is part of the experience at valu’s kitchen.
I have decided to go on with “Valu’s Kitchen cooking lessons experience” so I am working on the calendar and on a page entirely dedicated on cooking classes! See you soon with new cooking classes!
Enjoy some photos from that day!
I really enjoyed that Sunday afternoon and want to thank my first students who cooked delicious ravioli.
