The Discover Italy Hands On Cooking Series - Tuscany

May 28, 2013 • 6:30 PM

Join Massimo and discover the food of Tuscany!

With its enchanted landscapes and rolling hills covered with bright yellow fields of sunflowers, olive groves, and grapevines, hill towns, monuments, and art, Tuscany is the Italian region in every foreigner's dreams

Tuscan cooking today is characterized by simple food, not covered in heavy sauces.

Cooking is done with olive oil—used as salad dressing, poured over bread, and in soups and stews.

Beans are a staple. Sage, rosemary, thyme, and marjoram are popular herbs.

The farmland produces olive oil and wine, wheat, and fruits. Chickens, ducks, rabbits, cows, and pigs are raised in small estates.

The vegetables grown here include artichokes, asparagus, spinach, beans, and peas; and, a great number of wild mushrooms, including porcini and morels, is found.

Sample menu for the event:

Insalata Panzanella (rustic bread salad),

Pasta e Fagioli (Tuscan style pasta with rosemary beans);

Pappardelle with Mushroom Ragout;

Pollo alla Cacciatore (hunter's style chicken);

Tiramisu.

You are invited to bring along your own wine to enjoy along with the meal you will prepare.

Cost: $100 per person plus HST

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
