Course aim:
Keeping an eye on budget and an eye on healthy food, at this hands-on course you will learn how to cook real Italian food, acquiring some of the basics of Italian cuisine. The course will be taught in Italian.
Course description:
With one eye always focused on a healthy and varied diet (and the other focused on the budget!), we will take a journey through the Italian home cooking tradition. The course will be taught in Italian and is aimed at those who want to improve their knowledge of the language and/or their knowledge of the Italian cuisine. Every lesson you will learn how to cook a new Italian dish, following step by step instruction from our expert Italian tutor in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. You will gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to cook Italian food and you will also have the opportunity to have a chat and practise your Italian while cooking. At the end of the course you will be able to organize a real Italian dinner experience, from the starter to the dessert, to impress your friend's and family's palate.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. cook at least 6 traditional Italian dishes, ranging from "antipasti" (starters) to "dolci" (dessert).
2. organise an authentic Italian dinner experience, from the starter to the dessert, to impress my friends and family
3. transfer my new skills to other exciting recipes
4. have a conversation in Italian while cooking delicious meals
