How to make pasta “fresca”. How to cut and cook properly vegetables. How to use rice as starter or even as dessert. These are just few of the things you will learn during the 4 appointments workshop. You will experiment with different spice blends and ingredients how to create new flavour combinations or you will take one ingredient and challenge yourself to prepare it in different ways, from the first course to the dessert. Moreover, you won’t use meat and fish, so that all the dishes will be also for vegetarians.
