Italian Cuisine - Italian Cookery and Culture

Ref: C3680179

In this "hands-on" course we will take a journey through Italian culture while cooking food from the home cooking tradition. While acquiring some of the basics of Italian cuisine, you will also learn about Italy. Every lesson you will discover a particular area, learning about its history, its places and learning how to cook a new Italian dish following step by step instruction from our expert Italian tutor. You will gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to cook Italian food, but the course will also provide you with the inspiration to develop your own ideas and to transfer these skills to other exciting recipes.
